Black British Writing
"It's a book that opens up discussion and calls for strategic thinking and practical engagement with its ideas." --Anita Franklin, Black Arts Alliance Newsletter
This collection of essays provides an imaginative international perspective on ways to incorporate black British writing and culture in the study of English literature, and presents theoretically sophisticated and practical strategies for doing so. It offers a pedagogical, pragmatic and ideological introduction to the field for those without backg round, and an integrated body of current and stimulating essays for those who are already knowledgeable.
