Geographies of Postcolonialism introduces the principal themes and theories relating to postcolonialism. Written from a geographical perspective, the text includes extended explanations of the cultural and material aspects of the subject. Exploring postcolonialism through the geographies of imagination, knowledge, and power, the text is split into three comprehensive sections: Colonialisms discusses Western representations of the "Other" and the relationship between this and the European self image Neo-colonialisms discusses the continuing legacies of colonial ways of knowing through an examination of global culture, tourism, and popular culture Postcolonialisms discusses the core arguments about postcolonialism and culture with a focus on "hybridity"
