V.S. Naipaul has been critical of the postcolonial societies--their history, politics and culture. He has combined fiction, history, autobiography and facts to present his ideas and vision, relevant to the contemporary conditions. As a valued author, he has generated enormous interest/debate among the readers and scholars across the globe. The present book explores Naipaul's concern for suppressed histories of various civilizations and the related complex issues concerning the intriguing confusions regarding rootlessness, identity crisis and cultural predicament of the marginalized individuals, communities and nations. As a diasporic writer, Naipaul subverts the existing social order and history emphasizing the aspects of his immigrant experience related to the burning postcolonial issues such as search for identity, marginality, ethnicity, political disorders and neocolonial ills. The book discusses Naipaul's fictional and travel worlds which are sad, enigmatic and baffling as they raise the core issues of identity crisis, immigration, metaphysical alienation and search for roots.
