The contribution of this collection to scholarship is fourfold: it contributes to the expansion of knowledge about the African continent through a critic's response to its many forms of representation by writers outside as well as inside Africa; the range of writings provides intertextual evidence supportive of Dorsinville's own complex representation of Africa in his fiction and memoirs; it is a documented record of a broad paradigm concerned with a postcolonial representation of the dialectic of home and exile, memory and identity, and selfhood and otherness; and it provides a fascinating display of a postcolonial writer-critic's intellectual journey enlivened by his use of voice in the African tradition of oral exchange whereby he positions himself as the one speaking to and for the many. The volumes follow the original chronology of the publication of the individual texts. The contents range widely from books on (or by) many African and Caribbean writers, as well as Doris Lessing, David Halberstam, Idi Amin and Muhammad Ali.
