The long awaited follow-up to Ahmad's "In Theory", this is a meticulous analysis of the changing face of imperialism. This long-awaited sequel to "In Theory" offers a set of interlocking interventions in the most urgent of contemporary debates in political and cultural theory. Ahmad offers a distinctive new analysis of imperialism in the globalised era as it slides into planetary neoliberalisation and warfare, and historically novel forms of resistance emerge across the globe. Diverse in its thematics and rich in detail, "In Our Time" is bound to generate as much debate as its predecessor.
Aijaz Ahmad is the author of In Theory: Classes, Nations and Literatures and Lineages of the Present: Ideology and Political Genealogies of Contemporary South Asia. He has taught in several western and Indian universities. He currently lives in New Delhi and contributes frequently to Frontline magazine.
