Straddling a range of disciplinary perspectives and covering a variety of geographical regions, the contributions in "Enchantments of Modernity" imaginatively explore questions of colonization and decolonization, memory and madness, affect and authority, and cosmopolitanism and fundamentalism. The authors incisively elaborate issues of imperial power and nationalist knowledge, metropolitan histories and vernacular pasts, secular principles and democratic practices, and global economics and postcolonial politics. Through a combination of acute theoretical viewpoints and rich imperial materials - as well as an extensive, critical introduction - "Enchantments of Modernity" throws new light on empire, nation-state, globalization, and their interplay. In these ways, the volume unravels anew the conditions, limits and possibilities of modernity.
