Hispanists have been divided traditionally into specialists of either Spain or Latin America, yet this binarism is ill suited to a world that has been globalized since Magellan, ignoring the literature of Asian and African authors. These supposedly peripheral literary traditions are not isolated or parochial curiosities. Instead, they offer the opportunity for a rethinking of diverse cartographies of mainstream history, literature, and cultural studies, and help reimagine the centers and peripheries of the modern world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book's aim is as ambitious as it is timely: that of establishing a new field of global Hispanic studies emphases, one that bypasses the hidebound departmental binary of Peninsular/Latin American, that encompasses significant achievements of Hispanic literature coming out of Asia and Africa. What the author has accomplished is nothing short of a paradigm shift that will produce repercussions throughout 21st-century Hispanic studies."
--Eugenio Matibag, Iowa State University

"This is a work masterfully rendered, witty, original in its central thesis, and seminal in its scope. A classic in the making."
--Africa-Asia 2015 Book Prize Committee

"This volume serves as a valuable point of departure for the study of a largely unexplored subject: fiction written in Spanish in Equatorial Guinea and the Philippines during and following Spain's colonization. ... Recommended."
--P.W./I>--P.W.Manning "Choice "
