Ngũgĩ wa Thiongʼo by Oliver Lovesey( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Simon Gikandi's study offers a comprehensive analysis of all Ngugi's published work and explores the development of the major novels and plays against a background of colonialism and decolonization in Kenya. Gikandi places the works in a context that examines the way they engage with the changing history of Africa. Tracing Ngugi's career from the 1960s through to his role in shaping a radical culture in East Africa in the 1970s and his imprisonment and exile in the 1980s, this book provides insight int the author's life and the historic events that produced his work."--Jacket

Postcolonial George Eliot by Oliver Lovesey( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the range of the colonial imaginary in Eliot's works, from the domestic and regional to ancient and speculative colonialisms. It challenges monolithic, hegemonic views of George Eliot -- whose novelistic career paralleled the creation of British India -- and also dismissals of the postcolonial as ahistorical. It uncovers often-overlooked colonized figures in the novels. It also investigates Victorian Islamophobia in light of Eliot's impatience with ignorance, intolerance, and xenophobia as well as her interrogation of the make-believe of endings. Drawing on a range of sources from Eugène Bodichon's Algerian anthropological texts, the Persian journals of John Martyn, and postmodern re-engagements, Postcolonial George Eliot has implications for an understanding of the globalization of English, the decolonization of disciplinarity and periodization, and the roots of present-day conflict in the wider Mediterranean world"--Back cover

Victorian social activists' novels( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The position of fiction in the careers of these women is complex. Fiction writing was widely recognized as a 'profession' open to women, supplying ready money for personal expenses and for the social cause. It also permitted access to a broad readership that could not be accessed through pamphlets or periodicals, and it allowed the potential for influential literary celebrity. Moreover, romance and the novel had an important position in female education, and fiction allowed writers to voice some of their most unorthodox opinions."--Pub. desc
The mill on the floss by George Eliot( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic novel, first published in 1860, tells the story of Maggie Tulliver, Intelligent and headstrong but trapped by the conventions of family tradition and rural life, Maggie is one of the great heroines of Victorian literature. Along with Maggie's story, the novel also tells a companion tale of the social pressures that restrict the vision of her beloved brother Tom. George Eliot's most autobiographical novel, The Mill on the Floss remains one of her most popular and influential works." "This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and extensive contextualizing notes as well as a broad range of appendices drawn from contemporary documents dealing with issues such as 19th-century views of disability, education, and the Woman Question."--Jacket
Popular music and the postcolonial( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular Music and the Postcolonial addresses the often-overlooked relationship between the fields of popular music and postcolonial studies, and it has implications for ethnomusicology, cultural and literary studies, history, sociology, and political economy. Popular music in its many forms exploded in popularity, following developments in sound technology and shifting population demographics, in the 1960s, the era of radical agitation against empires in the global south but also within the very heart of Europe. Popular music aided in fostering and documenting such resistance to violent oppression and in liberating the hearts and minds of the colonized. This collection offers a timely intervention in this field, showing popular music's role in defining or undermining certain colonial and postcolonial nations, in expanding and complicating the domain of postcolonial theorists-including the "founder" of postcolonial studies Edward Said-and in decolonizing the ears of its diverse, sometimes antagonistic, audiences. This book was originally published as a special issue of Popular Music and Society
