Ideal for undergraduate students, this is a comprehensive introduction to the influential work of Homi K. Bhabha, a key figure in both post-colonial and post-structuralist theory. Like other titles in the "Transitions" series, the book first outlines the key principles behind his work and then uses this outline to offer readings of widely-studied literary texts.
