The Nation across the World examines the present state of the Nation in a variety of political formations and cultural locations around the world—from smaller but no less complex nations such as Fiji, Singapore, and Trinidad, to larger former colonies such as Australia, India, Sri Lanka, and South Africa, to former colonial powers such as Britain and Spain, and the one supernation of our day, the USA. In the process, a wide range of issues are explored, including colonialism, empire, race, language, ethnicity, resistance and rebellion, liberation, national self-fashioning and identity, and postcolonial migration and hybridity. The Nation is situated in relation to the sub-national and the local on the one hand and to cosmopolitan internationalism and world movements on the other. The book offers discussions not only of literary texts and intertexts but also of other cultural forms including stage performances, films, and the game of cricket. The nineteen contributors to this volume have themselves lived and worked in many countries and come from all over the globe. They include the novelists Vikram Seth and Austin Clarke, and a group of internationally distinguished academics including Homi Bhabha.
