Synopsis

The Post-Colonial Detective by Na Na

What happens to detective fiction when the detective is post-colonial, a marginalized native or settler in a country recovering from colonialism? This introduction to the peculiarities of the post-colonial detective and to post-colonial theory establishes a context in which to view more than a dozen notable detectives and authors from around the world. The essays present post-colonial detection as an exciting hybrid of western-influenced police methods and plot conventions with indigenous cultural insights and wisdom in exotic settings.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
