              The Postcolonial World offers an overview of the field while also extending critical debate in exciting new directions, providing an important and timely reappraisal of postcolonialism as an aesthetic, political, and historical movement, and of postcolonial studies as a multidisc...iplinary, transcultural field. Essays map the terrain of the postcolonial as a global phenomenon at the intersection of several disciplinary inquiries including history, literature, visual media, religion, human rights, geopolitics, cartography, gender, race, and the digital humanities. Including a detailed general introduction, the seven sections look at: * Cultural Memories and Affective Histories * Human Rights and Postcolonial Conflicts * Cultural Geography and Spatial Practices * Oriental Phantasms and Postcolonial Desires * Postcolonialism versus Neoliberalism * Religious Imaginings * Postcolonial Cultures and Digital Humanities The Postcolonial World looks afresh at re-emerging conditions of postcoloniality in its global, transnational, and international dimensions, drawing on a wide range of representational strategies, cultural practices, material forms, and affective affiliations. This volume is essential reading for both beginners as well as more advanced scholars in the area, offering clear introductions alongside new and refreshing insights.

              In its early years, the American Republic was far from stable. Conflict and violence, including major land wars, were defining features of the period from the Revolution to the outbreak of the Civil War, as struggles over who would control land and labor were waged across the Nor...th American continent. The World of the Revolutionary American Republic brings together original essays from an array of scholars to illuminate the issues that made this era so contested. Drawing on the latest research, the essays examine the conflicts that occurred both within the Republic and between the different peoples inhabiting the continent. Covering issues including slavery, westward expansion, the impact of Revolutionary ideals, and the economy, this collection provides a diverse range of insights into the turbulent era in which the United States emerged as a nation. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, both American and international, The World of the Revolutionary American Republic is an important resource for any scholar of early America.
