South African textual cultures

White, black, read all over

Andrew Van Der Vlies

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first and, to date, only South Africa specific study in the growing field of 'Book History' - specifically colonial and postcolonial book history - featuring cutting edge cultural/historical/literary methodology
  • Widely anticipated by academics across the field as a key, even seminal text that will help 'form' the field
  • Covers writers widely studied in South African literature history and culture, colonial and postcolonial courses, including work on many lesser known writers studied on those courses about which little or nothing has yet been written
  • Readable, engaging with political and cultural concerns but is salutory in its historicism and grounded in its approach to postcolonial thoery
