Summary:This volume presents readers with a tripartite purpose: to nurture a discussion and a critical reading on hierarchical relations and on modes of oppression; to foster a fertile dialogue, where poetic word, academic discourses and activism respond to each other; to recall through this manifesto that complex theories such as feminism and postcolonial thought are often stimulated by political convictions. The desire to deconstruct, even to "decolonize," the main theoretical fields of both postcolonial and feminist theories, indeed traverses this volume, as shown by the diversity and the vigour of the 28 articles presented herein. Divided into six thematic chapters, Reina Lewis's and Sara Mills's volume aims, not at defining the complexity of feminist postcolonial theory, but at locating its struggles, tools, and fields of investigation, through various, and often major texts of feminist postcolonial thought.
