Globalectics allows us to read world literature through Ngugi's sharp and compassionate eyes. Part memoir, part magisterial survey, and entirely engrossing, this book is a capstone to a long and brilliant career. -- Christopher L. Miller, Yale University In an ever-shrinking world, this book demonstrated the need to understand the similarities and differences in the stories we tell each other. Publishers Weekly Ngugi's writing style seamlessly blends personal narratives with complex theoretical discussions, taking the reader on a journey that combines his indisputable literary skills with an acute awareness of the theoretical landscape. -- Annika Hughes ID: International Dialogue Globalectics is an outstandingly succinct, grounded, and wide-reaching study that will be of interest, and an inspiration, to many scholars, especially those working and teaching in the fields of globalization and of postcolonial and comparative literary studies. -- Erica Lombard MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW
