RR Situating Colonial and Postcolonial Studies—Ania Loomba «This special issue of French Studies explores the feasibility of — and need for — new work at the intersection of nineteenth-century French studies and postcolonial studies. To say merely that the further development of such a project remains timely would, however, be to underestimate quite how strange it is that this topic has not received specific and sustained attention from within the field of French studies, given the centrality of the nineteenth century both in colonial history and in the genesis of postcolonial theory itself. Recent years have, meanwhile, seen the extension of postcolonial approaches to earlier periods of literary history. But there has been no concerted or sustained attempt to address the relevance of postcolonialism to our understanding of nineteenth-century French literary history. The development of postcolonial approaches to the French nineteenth century has however been hampered by several factors, of which we will outline three briefly here: historiographic, terminological, and disciplinary. French colonial culture in the nineteenth century presents an altogether messier picture, including not simply direct colonial dominion, but expansionist policies of indirect control through economic or intellectual influence, and the hesitations and contestations that attended such policies.

Situated comparatively across disciplines and cultural contexts, this book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in postcolonial studies. Distrustful of established and self-perpetuating assumptions, foci and canonical texts which threaten to fossilize postcolonial studies as a discipline, Loomba's magisterial study raises many crucial issues pertaining to social structure and identity; engaging with different modes of theory and social explanation in the process.
