Part of the Commonalities series

Paperback / softback

  • Information


No longer able to read community in terms colored by a romantic nostalgia for homogeneity, closeness and sameness, or the myth of rational choice, we nevertheless face an imperative to think the common.

The prominent scholars assembled here come together to articulate community while thinking seriously about the tropes, myths, narratives, metaphors, conceits, and shared cultural texts on which any such articulation depends.

The result is a major contribution to literary theory, postcolonialism, philosophy, political theory, and sociology.
