|| "The Journal of Commonwealth Literature has long established itself as an invaluable resource and guide for scholars in the overlapping fields of Commonwealth Literature, Postcolonial Literature and New Literatures in English. The journal is an institution, a household word and, most of all, a living, working companion." Edward Baugh After nearly forty years of publication, The Journal of Commonwealth Literature is internationally recognized as the leading critical and bibliographic forum in the field. It provides an essential reference tool for scholars, researchers and information scientists involved in all aspects of Commonwealth and postcolonial literatures. Three of the four issues each year bring together the latest critical comment on all aspects of Commonwealth and postcolonial literature and related areas, such as postcolonial theory, translation studies and colonial discourse. The fourth issue provides a comprehensive bibliography of publications in the field.
