Orientalism, terrorism, Indigenism: South Asian Readings in Postcolonialism (Sage, 2015)

 
The book examines the uses of postcolonial theory in understanding the structural transformations enabled by post-9/11 discourses of Orientalism and terrorism; the internal contradictions between South Asian approaches to postcolonialism and its European adaptations; and the resistance produced by the indigenization of local literary traditions in the work of select South Asian literary figures.
