In this volume well-known scholars from India and Latin America-Enrique Dussel, Madhu Dubey, Walter Mignolo, and Sudipta Sen, to name a few-discuss the concepts of modernity and colonialism, and describe how the two relate to each other.

This explores the vital impact of the colonial pasts of India, Mexico, China, and even the United States on the processes through which these countries have become modern. The collection is unique as it brings together a range of disciplines and perspectives. The topics discussed include the Zapatista movement in southern Mexico, the image of the South in recent African-American literature, the theories of Andre Gunder Frank about the early modernization of Asian countries, and the contradictions of the colonial state in India.
