    Postcolonial literature has often tended to invite readings that focus on the relation between texts and political contexts, not surprisingly perhaps, given the fraught historical moments of colonialism and decolonisation with which it frequently engages. Nevertheless, critics such as Nicholas Harrison have argued for attention to the literary as literary, and have explored the ways in which. In this timely contribution to debates about the future of postcolonial theory groundbreaking scholar Chris Bongie explores the troubled relationship between postcolonial theory and 'politics', both in the sense of a radical, revolutionary politics associated with anti-colonial struggle, and the almost inevitable implication of literary writers in institutional discourses of power.

    Although Edward Said’s work was translated earlier (L’Orientalisme: l’Orient créé par l’Occident, trans. by Catherine Malamoud (Paris: Seuil, )), other key texts of postcolonial theory have only recently been translated, for example Homi K. Bhabha, Les Lieux de la culture: une théorie postcoloniale, trans. by Françoise Bouillot (Paris: Payot, ) and Gayatri Chakravorty. Modern African literature responds to colonial and post-colonial issues, it can be seen as a subset of the postcolonial theory. Its prolificacy makes it a paragon of postcolonial literature.

    The field of Twentieth-Century French Studies has been dramatically changed by the rise of post-colonial paradigms. These have generated Francophone studies on, for example, African and Caribbean writers, film makers, ethnicity, politics, linguistics, literature, culture, and especially in the fields of women's studies. Beyond Francophone postcolonial studies: exploring the ends of comparison. Charles Forsdick [P]ostcolonial studies has the potential to assemble new communities and networks of people who are joined by the common political and ethical commitment to challenging and questioning the practices and consequences of domination and subordination.
