Manchester University Press, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 271 pages
This volume provides an analytic survey of the literature produced as a consequence of the long history of Britain's rule in India. It stretches from the establishment of British hegemony in the 1750's to the achievement of Indian independence in the postcolonial era almost two centuries later. Writing India concludes with a chapter on Salman Rushdie in order to suggest the complex relation of continuity as well as conflict between colonial and postcolonial constructions of India.
