    First published in 1992 immediately following the collapse of the Soviet Union, 'In Theory: Classes, Nations, Literatures' by Aizaj Ahmad takes up the national question at a world historic moment where governments negotiate at the cusp of a global geo-political reordering of allegiances. The political impetus provided by the establishment of State Socialism, first in USSR and then in China provided the crucial reinforcement needed for the spine of a global anti-imperialist wave which witnessed t [...]

    نقد جيد لافكار ادوارد سعيد في الاستشراق في اطار نقد اعجاز احمد لمدرسة مابعد الكولونيالية وبخاصة رؤية سعيد للابستيم الغربي، وللتحولات اللاحقة له بعد الاستشراق ، وايضا نقدا لتصور بعض الانتلجنسيا العالمثالثية التي تصور نفسها كطليعه نقلت الصراع مع المركز الغربي لمواقع متقدمة [...]

    great defense of Marxism against post-structuralist and post-colonial literary analysis. i'm afraid that the chapter on specific Indian literatures went over my head, though. i also thought he was somewhat splitting hairs over specific flaws in Said's methodology even if his critique itself is quite good.

    read this before you fall too much in love with said and bhabha and all those

    Defective analysis of the global situation (rehash of Kautsky's Ultra-imperialist thesis) but nevertheless an engaging and persuasive Marxist critiques of Edward Said, Fredric Jameson, Theory of Forces of Production-inspired "Third World" Theory, different strands of postmodern and postcolonial theories, and postcolonial literary canon (particularly Rushdie).

    يجمع اعجاز احمد في هذا الكتاب مجموعة مقالات مختلفة تهدف إلى "كسر البنية النظرية الحالية" فيما يخص نقاشات الامبريالية والاستعمار. يتحدث الكاتب عن مجالات مختلفة مثل تحليل الخطاب الاستعمار والنظريات المختصة بالعالم الثالث ومايسمى "بأدب العالم الثالث." في أحد أكثر مقالات الكتا [...]

    Brilliant. Read it. Especially if you feel you have any stake in "the left" and communism broadly speaking. Read it if you've read Said, and especially if you've read Orientalism. Some of the stuff will be less useful for some folks. The chapter on the problems of conceptualizing "Indian literature" for instance will certainly have a select audience in mind, namely those well versed enough in the topic, broadly speaking, to adequately engage with Ahmad's contentions (something I have no place do [...]

    A defense for Marxism as a more effective political alternative for poststructuralism. Oddly there were times when I couldn't put this book down, and a couple parts made me laugh out loud. I guess I'm a fan of the angry theorists.

    Aijaz Ahmad apunta que las descripciones que Marx efectúa de la historia de la India parecen haber sido tomadas directamente de Hegel. Ver Ahíjas Ahmad, In Theory: Classes, Nations, Literatures (London: Verso, 1992), pp. 231 y 241.[Imperio|12466868] Pág.94

    Eh, interesting enough I guess. But not really what I need for school. More of a Marxist criticism on Said and on literary theory in general.
