Moving the centre: the struggle for cultural freedoms
Over the past four hundred years, world cultures have been dominated by a handful of Western nations. The West came to see itself as the center of the universe, and cultural power, as much as political and economic power, was controlled at the center.
In this collection of essays and lectures Ngugi is concerned with "moving the center" in two senses-between nation and within nations-in order to free world cultures from the restrictive walls of nationalism, class, race, and gender.
