The Post-Colonial Studies Readeris the most comprehensive selection of key texts in post-colonial theory and criticism yet compiled. This collection covers a huge range of topics, featuring nearly ninety of the discipline's most widely read works. TheReader's90 extracts are designed to introduce the major issues and debates in the field of post-colonial literary studies. This field itself, however, has become so varied that no collection of readings could encompass every voice which is now giving itself the name "post-colonial." The editors, in order to avoid a volume which is simply a critical canon, have selected works representing arguments with which they do not necessarily agree, but rather which above all stimulate discussion, thought and further exploration. Post-colonial "theory" has occurred in all societies into which the imperial force of Europe has intruded, though not always in the official form oftheoretical text. Like the description of any other field the term has come to mean many things, but this volume hinges on one incontestable phenomenon: the "historical fact"of colonialism, and the palpable consequences to which this phenomenon gave rise. The topic involves talk about experience of various kinds: migration, slavery, suppression, resistance, representation, difference, race, gender, place, and reaction to the European influence, and about the fundamental experiences of speaking and writing by which all these come into being. In compiling this reader, the editors have sought to stimulate people to ask: "How might a genuinely post-colonial literary enterprise proceed?" The fourteen sections include: Issues and Debates; Universality and Difference; Textual Representation and Resistance; Postmodernism and Post-Colonialism; Nationalism; Hybridity; Ethnicity and Indigenity; Feminism and Post-Colonialism; Language; The Body and Performance; History; Place; Education; and Production andConsumption. Contributors include many of the leading post-colonial theorists and critics--such as Franz Fanon, Chinua Achebe, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Homi Bhabba, Derek Walcott, Edward Said, and Trinh T. Minh-ha--in addition to a number of the discourse's newer voices.The Post-Colonial Studies Readerwill prove an authoritative compilation, representing an invaluable contribution to the study of post-colonial theory and criticism.

The experience of colonization and the challenges of a post-colonial world have produced an explosion of new writing in English. This diverse and powerful body of literature has established a specific practice of post-colonial writing in cultures as various as India, Australia, the West Indies and Canada, and has challenged both the traditional canon and dominant ideas of literature and culture. The Empire Writes Back was the first major theoretical account of a wide range of post-colonial texts and their relation to the larger issues of post-colonial culture, and remains one of the most significant works published in this field. The authors, three leading figures in post-colonial studies, open up debates about the interrelationships of post-colonial literatures, investigate the powerful forces acting on language in the post-colonial text, and show how these texts constitute a radical critique of Eurocentric notions of literature and language. This book is brilliant not only for its incisive analysis, but for its accessibility for readers new to the field. Now with an additional chapter and an updated bibliography, The Empire Writes Back is essential for contemporary post-colonial studies.

Postkoloniale Studien setzen sich kritisch mit kolonialen Gesellschaftsstrukturen und Repräsentationen von Andersheit bzw. Eigenem auseinander, die sich bis in die Gegenwart fortschreiben. Für das Selbstverständnis der ‚westlichen Gesellschaften‘ so zentrale Unterscheidungen wie Tradition/Moderne, Orient/Okzident, Natur/Kultur, Eigenes/Fremdes etc. stehen dabei zur Disposition. Der Band veranschaulicht die Vielstimmigkeit des postkolonialen Diskurses, indem er einerseits einen orientierenden Überblick über die zentralen Werke und AutorInnen der Postcolonial Studies, wie etwa Edward W. Said, Homi K. Bhabha, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Stuart Hall oder bell hooks, und ihre ideengeschichtlichen Referenzen verschafft. Andererseits wird die Rezeptionsgeschichte postkolonialer Perspektiven in geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen nachgezeichnet: u.a. in Literatur-, Politik-, Medien-, Religionswissenschaft, Ethnologie, Soziologie oder auch Kunstgeschichte. Der Band versteht sich nicht nur als Nachschlagewerk für Studierende und Interessierte; er leistet auch einen eigenen Beitrag zur Theoriebildung.

Travel writing, it has been said, helped produce the rest of the world for a Western audience. Could the same be said more recently of postcolonial writing? In The Postcolonial Exotic, Graham Huggan examines some of the processes by which value is attributed to postcolonial works within their cultural field. Using varied methods of analysis, Huggan discusses both the exoticist discourses that run through postcolonial studies, and the means by which postcolonial products are marketed and domesticated for Western consumption. Global in scope, the book takes in everything from: * the latest 'Indo-chic' to the history of the Heinemann African Writers series * from the celebrity stakes of the Booker Prize to those of the US academic star-system *from Canadian multicultural anthologies to Australian 'tourist novels'. This timely and challenging volume points to the urgent need for a more carefully grounded understanding of the processes of production, dissemination and consumption that have surrounded the rapid development of the postcolonial field.

In diesem Buch der renommierten indisch-amerikanischen Literaturwissenschaftlerin geht es zunachst um die kritische Sichtung einfluss- und folgenreicher philosophischer Denkansatze seit Kant, die das Mittel- und Westeuropaische mit Hilfe von Minderwertigkeitskonstrukten als menschliche Norm etablieren. Eine solche kolonialpolitische Normierung mitsamt ihrer "naturlichen" Denkstrukturen bedarf einer dekonstruktiven Kritik. Gezeigt wird sodann anhand einschlagiger literarischer Texte, wie Kolonialismus und Postkolonialitat Gestalt annehmen: Charlotte Bronte, Mary Shelley, Charles Baudelaire, Rudyard Kipling, Jean Rhys, Mahasweta Devi, John M. Coetzee. Es gilt sich der Geschichte der verrinnenden Gegenwart als einem differenzierenden Ereignis zuzuwenden: "unserer Kultur" - dem Wechselspiel von Multikulturalismus und Globalitat.

The driving influence of managed care and cost containment is causing home care organizations to reconceptualize their roles in the health care delivery system while stimulating massive changes in agency structure, operations, and services. Medicare-certified home health agencies, which have flourished under a per-visit, fee-for-service reimbursement model, are increasingly delivering care under managed care reimbursement models. Conducted at this pivotal point in time, the book examines the intersection of two rapidly growing health care sectors: home health and managed care.The environment surrounding the transition from traditional reimbursement to managed care is uncertain and rapidly changing. Strategies organizations are using to cope with this uncertainty and HHA administrators' perceptions of the two greatest impacts of managed care are described.Despite considerable variation in agency characteristics, more similarities than differences are found among HHAs. The research concludes that market and environment pressures within heavily HMO-penetrated communities encourage all HHAs to become similar, regardless of whether the HHAs have managed care contracts.

In zehn Geschichten erzählt Margaret Atwood von Frauen am Wendepunkt ihres Lebens. Auf hochintelligente Weise arbeitet Margaret Atwood dabei mit der Zeit: Dinge, die im unmittelbaren Erleben eindeutig erscheinen, erweisen sich im Rückblick nach vielen Jahren als schillernd. Und wenn man im Nachhinein auf eine Karriere, auf ein Leben blickt, entfaltet sich erst die Ironie, die in einer Situation liegen kann.

Als glUckliche Bestimmung gilt es mir heute, da das Schicksal mir zum Geburtsort gerade Braunau am Inn zuwies. Liegt doch dieses StAdtchen an der Grenze jener zwei deutschen Staaten, deren Wiedervereinigung mindestens uns JUngeren als eine mit allen Mitteln durchzufUhrende Lebensaufgabe erscheint! DeutschOsterreich mu wieder zurUck zum groen deutschen Mutterlande, und zwar nicht aus GrUnden irgendwelcher wirtschaftlichen ErwAgungen heraus. Nein, nein: Auch wenn diese Vereinigung, wirtschaftlich gedacht, gleichgUltig, ja selbst wenn sie schAdlich wAre, sie mUte dennoch stattfinden. Gleiches Blut gehOrt in ein gemeinsames Reich. Das deutsche Volk besitzt solange kein moralisches Recht zu kolonialpolitischer TAtigkeit, solange es nicht einmal seine eigenen SOhne in einem gemeinsamen Staat zu fassen vermag. Erst wenn des Reiches Grenze auch den letzten Deutschen umschliet, ohne mehr die Sicherheit seiner ErnAhrung bieten zu kOnnen, ersteht aus der Not des eigenen Volkes das moralische Recht zur Erwerbung fremden Grund und Bodens. Der Pflug ist dann das Schwert, und aus den TrAnen des Krieges erwAchst fUr die Nach welt das tAgliche Brot. So scheint mir dieses kleine GrenzstAdtchen das Symbol einer groen Aufgabe zu sein.

Kultur- und literaturwissenschaftliche Theorien schießen heute wie Pilze aus dem Boden. Den Überblick behalten, heißt die Devise. Welche Konzepte sind relevant? Welche Begriffe spielen eine tragende Rolle? Wie haben sich die literaturgeschichtlichen Modelle entwickelt? Welche Autoren prägen die gegenwärtigen Diskurse? In rund 720 kompakten Artikeln verwandeln sich abstrakte Begriffe und komplexe Modelle in gut verständliches Grundlagenwissen. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die großen Theorien wie z.B. Dekonstruktion, feministische Literaturtheorie, Konstruktivismus, New Historicism, Mentalitätsgeschichte, postkoloniale Literaturkritik und Poststrukturalismus. Von Aristoteles über Derrida, Foucault, Greenblatt bis Hayden White, von Appellfunktion bis Zirkulation - kein bedeutender Theoretiker und kein zentraler Begriff wird außer Acht gelassen. Was ist neu in der 3. Auflage? Grundlegend überarbeitet manifestiert das Werk wieder den neuesten Forschungsstand. Und: 20 Artikel zu interdisziplinären und intermedialen Aspekten der Theoriebildung vervollständigen den Klassiker. Ein Muss für alle, die sich mit Literatur- und Kulturtheorie befassen.
