"The editors are to be commended not only for persuading such an exciting and well-regarded group of scholars to contribute to this collection but also for structuring the collection so wisely. The essays range widely enough among topics of study to underscore the diverse ways in which modernists and modernist texts engaged with colonial questions, but a genuine, seemingly effortless dialogue unfolds among the essays." -- Paige Reynolds * Journal of British Studies * "The subject of this collection-the relation between modernism, understood especially in terms of formal innovation and self-reflexivity, and the historical phenomenon of British colonialism and of resistance to colonialism-is an important and timely one that has received remarkably little attention."-Derek Attridge, author of The Singularity of Literature "Modernism and Colonialism will have a real impact on the fields of postcolonial studies and British modernism. It succeeds in treating colonialism as a condition of possibility for a vibrant British-transnational modernism."-Simon During, author of Modern Enchantments: The Cultural Power of Secular Magic "Modernism and Colonialism is a terrific book-timely, intelligent, capacious, and a pleasure to read."-Douglas Mao, coeditor of Bad Modernisms
