Routledge & CRC Press Series: Decolonizing the Classics The critique of colonialism and post-colonialism has by now been broadly disseminated and understood. The logical next step in moving beyond colonialism in thought, research, and academic practice is to engage in decolonization efforts. Interested in proposing a book for a book series?
