In this major intervention into the "Asian Century," Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak challenges the reader to re-think Asia, in its political and cultural complexity, in the global South and in the metropole. Among the chapters in this volume are: "Foucault and Najibullah," in which she looks at Afghanistan in its own historical and gendered narrative "Moving Devi," in which she addresses the authority of autobiography and writes as a diasporic "Responsibility," in which she examines the limits of "theory" upon the floodplains of Bangladesh "Megacity," where she reads cyberliteracy in Bangalore. Other chapters focus on, among other things, Human Rights, and the turbulent "present" of the Caucasus.
