"R. Radhakrishnan belongs to a generation of critics which hasenriched contemporary literature by revolutionizing the literarycanon. He is one of the foremost of this generation and deservedlyso." Amitav Ghosh, author of The Glass Palace <!--end--> "Written with a magnanimous spirit and vision, Theory in anUneven World is a welcome reminder of the challengestheoretical thinking continues to pose. I applaud R. Radhakrishnanfor countering the fashionable gesture of theory-bashing with suchintensely engaging critical discussions." Rey Chow, BrownUniversity "In a world ridden with unevenness, Radhakrishnan'sintense analyses invoke the need for shattering the self-reflexivediscourses of the academy so as to open them up to the demands ofthe oppressed."
