'Postcolonial Travel Writing: Critical Explorations is an important study of central contemporary writers and their postcolonial travel text. With an impressive line-up of experts in the field, including scholars and travel writers, the collection embarks on the very timely project not only to offer close, theory-informed readings of significant travelogues, but also to revisit the use and usefulness of paradigms like 'the postcolonial', 'globalization', 'transculturation', or 'the contact zone', with which these travel texts are usually greeted and treated.'
- Julia Kuehn, Assistant Professor of English, University of Hong Kong
'Postcolonial Travel Writing is a wonderful new addition to travel writing studies...The attention to questions of form in almost all essays while not always conclusive and one need not be, of course is very welcome, and we get 'travel history', 'travel writing', 'travel memoir' and 'travelogue' jostling for nomenclatural space...The volume is likely to be essential reading for scholars and students of this notoriously Protean genre.' - Pramod K. Nayar, The University of Hyderabad, India, Studies in Travel Writing
