        Welcome to the Jungle : New Positions in Black Cultural Studies

        London: Routledge 1994

        ISBN 9780415906357

      1. Mercer’s first major book put him on the map of black studies and post-colonial studies when it was published in the UK in the mid-1990s. It was influential in that it provided a black British perspective to the debates about sexuality, ethnicity, class, and race that raged throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In ten essays, new cultural production from a new generation of young black British artists representing Asian, African, and Caribbean diasporas is considered. See the ‘Introduction: Black Britain and the Cultural Politics of Diaspora,’ ‘Black Art and the Burden of Representation,’ and ‘Welcome to the Jungle: Identity and Diversity in Postmodern Politics.’
