Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Postcolonial Orient: The Politics of Difference and the Project of Provincialising Europe contains the acknowledgements, and a preface. This book is an engagement with what is commonly understood now-a-days by the term 'post-colonialism' in American and British universities and, to an extent, in the ex-colonial countries themselves. The 'post-colonial' might once have referred primarily to the agendas of development and distributive justice that informed the concerns of the first two generations or so of progressive thinkers and public figures with the end of the formal colonisation of a number of countries of what was once called the 'Third World'.

Keywords: Europe; post-colonialism
