This deeply engaging, historically, and culturally informed book provides new perspectives on a wide range of writers, and at the same time provides a radically new development of many of the most pertinent issues in the field of postcolonial writing and theory. It constitutes a major new engagement between the 'postcolonial' and a conception of the literary that is richly innovative in its deployment of psychoanalytic, deconstructive, and other approaches to the text.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With this dense yet illuminating study, Punter provides a provocative 'outline' for further study of endangered postcolonial literatures. The study is well documented, has a useful bibliography and index, and will be of most value to graduate students, researchers, and faculty. * CHOICE *
In this provocative and important book David Punter opens up new ways of thinking about the postcolonial and the literary. Starting from the idea that `Where are you from?' is a terroristic question, he provides an impassioned and brilliant account of the ineluctable encounters between politics, literature, and the uncanny. -- Nicholas Royle, Professor of English, University of Sussex
