Power, Postcolonialism and International Relations uses postcolonial theory to examine the implications of race, class and gender relations for the structuring of world politics. The volume further explores postcoloniai themes, such as the politics of representation, global capital and power, resistance and agency, and applies them to the study of global power asymmetries, The implications of these themes are discussed using a wide range of postcoloniai readings and critiques of contemporary issues. Issues discussed by the contributors to this volume are: • the French left, West African politicans and the politics of decolonization • United States immigration and security discourses • indigenous knowledge and its implications for international relations • cultural chauvinism and the Asian financial crisis • the global trade in sex and domestic workers • ethnicity, identity and nationalism in postcoloniai Guyana • Islam as the new cold war threat . Tibetan (trans)national identity politics • child labour, human rights discourse and the Indian carpet trade • postcoloniai Burma and liberal human rights discourse.
