Controversial, challenging and outspoken, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak is best known as a deconstructionist and post-colonial theorist. With an awe-inspiring track record in several areas, ranging from feminism and Marxism to literary criticism and of course, post-colonialism, she has built a reputation for being simultaneously at home and an outsider in many disciplines.
 
The interviews collected in this volume reflect the international character of her intellectual engagement as, in her criss-crossings of the globe, she engages with activists, scholars and writers located in different cultural contexts, from America to India to Macedonia and China.
 

A celebrity in academia . . . [Spivak] creates a stir wherever she goes.New York Times

Spivak is a unique voice of courage and conceptual ambition that addresses public life from the perspective of psychic reality, encouraging us to acknowledge the solidarity and the suffering through which we emerge as subjects of freedom.—Homi. K. Bhabha
