"Pramod Nayar's The Postcolonial Studies Dictionary, with its careful explication of concepts and terms associated with various forms of colonial discourses and postcolonial writing, serves the purpose of being both a ready-reference guide and a scholarly exposition of the theoretical frameworks of the "discipline" of postcolonial studies. Lavishly illustrated through citations from literary-cultural texts, the Dictionary maps the tradition of critical thought we know as postcolonialism while bringing it right up to the contemporary era's E-Empires, neocolonialism's anthropocene visuality and new forms of hybridity in the age of the digital. An eminently useable work." Senath Perera, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka
