It has been 40 years in since this book which paved the way for a systematic study of post-colonialism was published. Though 40 years is a period enough [ ].

Post-colonial literatures in English: general, theoretical, and comparative, / Published: () The empire writes back: theory and practice in post-colonial literatures / by: Ashcroft, Bill, Published: ().
