The essays in this volume present new scholarship on imperial expansion through colonization and globalization from a variety of postcolonial perspectives. Most of the articles are grounded in literary works. National identities and imageries are scrutinized, deconstructing the modernist and utopian idea of a nation as a site of homogeneity, and reviewing the importance of the changing concept of identity in the different phases of decolonization.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Covering a wide range of texts-from contemporary British detective fiction to Hollywood's King Solomon's Mines-the essays in this collection deploy a variety of postcolonial approaches to examine and argue for a continuum between colonialism and globalization. This is a timely, refreshing volume, which will be of keen interest to scholars of contemporary literature and culture. -- Padmini Mongia, editor of Contemporary Postcolonial Theory
This is an excellent and timely intervention into the dialogue between postcolonialism and globalization studies, emphasizing as it does the utility and adaptability of postcolonial concepts to a rapidly changing world. The collection demonstrates with admirable clarity the ways in which the imperial enterprise has developed globally and shows how valuable postcolonial analyses have become. -- Bill Ashcroft, author of Intimate Horizons: the Post-Colonial Sacred in Australian Literature
