Books in the Library

Post-colonial theory focuses on writings by colonial powers or about colonized countries/states/regions, as well as works by colonized individuals. "Post-colonial theory looks at issues of power, economics, politics, religion, and culture and how these elements work in relation to colonial hegemony (western colonizers controlling the colonized)".
