Summary

Modern ideas of freedom and human rights have been repeatedly contested and are hotly debated at the beginning of the third millennium in response to new theories, needs, and changes in the world today.This volume offers culturally diverse responses to the contemporary idea of 'freedom' from the literatures and the arts of the postcolonial world.The book is divided into five sections that consider:resisting history and colonialismthe right to move and to belonghow to move beyond the borders of bodiesthe right to believe in free futuresimaginative freedom and critical engagement.Each section opens with an original piece of creative writing directly connected to the topics, from writers such as Alexis Wright, Caryl Philips, Chris Abani and Anita Desai.
