Tracing a genealogy of colonial discourse, Suleri focuses on paradigmatic moments in the multiple stories generated by the British colonization of the Indian subcontinent. Both the literature of imperialism and its postcolonial aftermath emerge here as a series of guilty transactions between two cultures that are equally evasive and uncertain of their own authority.""A dense, witty, and richly allusive book ... an extremely valuable contribution to postcolonial cultural studies as well as to the whole area of literary criticism.
