South African textual cultures: white, black, read all over
"Nation" and "literature" are always inherently unstable categories but, in the case of South Africa, this instability is particularly marked. This study considers the effects local and global networks had on the publication, promotion and reception of a series of key writers and their works between 1883 and 2005, asking: who published what, where, why. Exploring new approaches to studying colonial and postcolonial print cultures, it seeks to redress inadequately historicized or transnationally situated studies of South African writing in English. The book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in South African, African, and general colonial and postcolonial literatures and history, as well as those with an interest print and media cultures, and the History of the Book.
