This Book Is A Pioneering And Timely Intervention In The Critical Scene Today. It Poses A Challenge To The Dominant, Market-Driven, Globalising, And Totalising Intellectual And Cultural Trends Of Our Times Which Threaten To Marginalize And Subdue Our Native Ways Of Life. The Fifteen Essays Included Here Introduce And Define The Concept, Analyse Its Classical, Medieval, And Colonial Background, Trace Its Evolution Into The Contemporary Critical Field, Debate Its Strengths And Weaknesses, And, Finally, Attempt To Put It Into Practice By Applying It To Contemporary Literary Works. The Work Is An Attempt To Show That There Are Alternative Possibilities Of Facing Up To Our Present Cultural Crises.
