        Postcolonialism: A Very Short Introduction

        Robert J.C. Young

        Oxford University Press 2003

        ISBN 9780192801821

      1. This ‘short guide’ by one of the foremost historians of postcolonialism is a concise counterpart to Young’s important book Postcolonialism: A Historical Introduction (2001). It outlines key developments in the postcolonial discourse as well as in the history of anti-colonial movements on a global scale, and explores how such movements articulated their resistance to colonial dominance and the ‘third world’ categorization that came to define the entire continent of Africa and other so-called developing nations during the Cold War. See in particular Chapter 6 Globalization from a postcolonial perspective.
