Description:

This book offers a critical examination of aspects of the politics the role of English in Africa and its Diaspora. It looks at its changed location in the post-Cold War era and the challenges it poses to the enduring quest for intellectual liberation, pan-Africanism and Afrocentricity. The study also explores the spaces and possibilities for “appropriating” the language towards a counter-hegemonic African-centred agenda under the present global order.
