£33.99
This collection on Ngugi's work and the reach of his thinking chiefly within the US and areas of its closest hegemony joins artists, activists, critics and scholars (often the same) from the Caribbean through North America to Hawai'i. The chapters, together and singularly, track his hopeful but not naive path from decolonising the mind (defusing the 'cultural bomb' that is colonising's obliteration of names, languages, cultures and homeland bonds) to balancing cultures as equal knots in the mesh of an evenly-woven global net, then to finding and making ties and exchanges in a global dialogue.
