'Drawing on a course road tested for over a decade, Sharp has delivered an invaluable aid for teaching students about the complex political, cultural and spatial logics of colonialism and post-colonialism. Difficult theoretical jargon is demystified and the generous use of illustrations and quotes from both academic and popular sources means students can work with manageable measures of primary material. Postcolonial Geographies has succeeded in delivering a meaningful conversation between political economic accounts of development and cultural accounts of identity.
Interesting with geographical perspectives on the issue of postcolonialism
Provides a good clear overview for students. Incorporates good examples that have been introduced into teaching
I would recommend this text for students taking the unit I teach. Contemporary thinking and study relates to core issues raised in this work
Geographies of Postcolonialism is a very accessible introduction to colonialism, post-colonialism and postcolonial geographies. It draws on a comprehensıve range of sources in outlining the linkages between knowledge, power and representation of the colonial image. The book will be a key source not only for students of geography and development but also for other branhces of social sciences such as International Relations where postcolonial arguments have inreasingly become a major part of critical theorizing.
A great book. Informed, up-to-date, readable. But my students aren't ready for it in 2nd year. Definitely something for 3rd years, though, and I expect to use it in my Rural Geography course which will cover post-colonialism.
