Apartheid and Beyond is a major contribution to the study of South African literature, offering innovative readings of writers like Coetzee, Gordimer, Fugard, Tlali, and Mda. Focusing on the relationship between place, subjectivity, and literary form, this study enhances our understanding of apartheid as a geographical form of control and of its imagined and actual transformation.
Readership: Graduate students and professors in postcolonial studies in South African literature, culture, and history. Graduate and undergraduate literature students.
