5.0 von 5 Sternen An Extremely Fine Work
I was both suprised and appalled to read the 1st review of this book. Clearly the author is one of the "anxious graduate students" that is referred to. Bhabha's writing is clear and engaging, and his thoughts and ideas fascinating. The depth of knowledge, combined with the profound ideas contained within, make this book one of the finest in its field, and...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Homi don't play that!
Let's get one thing straight. Homi Bhabhi is difficult to understand. However, I think everyone else who wrote reviews is wrong. Bhabha is the only post-colonial theorist who has an adequate grasp of historical dynamics in constructing identity, while remaining unafraid to problematize notions of historicity. I don't think the other people who reviewed this book...

I don't think the other people who reviewed this book understand that. I liked this book. But I liked his earlier stuff--EG Nation and Narration--a little better.

Bhabha's writing is clear and engaging, and his thoughts and ideas fascinating. The depth of knowledge, combined with the profound ideas contained within, make this book one of the finest in its field, and mark Bhabha as one of the leading post-colonial theorists of his era and others too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Trivial pursuits equal trivial rewards, 26. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Location of Culture (Taschenbuch)
I, too, must take issue with the first review. This book has influenced all major scholarship in post-colonial theory since it was published, so I don't think it qualifies as trivial. Bhaba has many original suggestions about articulating, reading, and understanding the decolonized subject, and his ideas about the uses of time in narrative are fascinating. While it is true that the prose is difficult, it invites a second, third, and fourth reading. I did not understand it completely the first time I read it, but found the ideas compelling enough to return. My experience with this book has been extremely rewarding and productive. Others will find the same rewards if they are willing to spend the time. The book is not a sound byte. It is a long and poetic journey to the other side of the world and back.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic work, 2. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Location of Culture (Taschenbuch)
Anybody who is foolish enough to even attempt to sum up Bhabha's fine work in two words immediately shows their ignorance. However, anyone who could possibly call the book either bland or boring shows their plain stupidity. Though the book is complex, and not easily understood by those completely new to the field of post-colonial theory, it contains many sections of excellent writing, reminiscent of Naipaul, as well as many insights which are remarkable in their profundity. Reading Bhabha has been a wonderful experience and I strongly urge anyone interested in this topic to buy and study the book immediately.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Trivial, 8. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Location of Culture (Taschenbuch)
Bhabha masks his interesting, if somewhat simple thoughts in an arcane poststructuralist discourse in order to hide their relative triviality. He is a very minor thinker who garners attention only because he has managed to be at the right place and at the right time to appeal to anxious graduate students desparate to have their thoughts validated by an apparently "difficult" authority. Strictly for the phonies.
But the acknowledgements to this book must be seen to be believed. A more toadying series of comments has never been committed to paper--although I suppose Bhabha, if pressed, would hurriedly excuse their bootlicking tone as an ironic postcolonial strategy, hm? How convenient.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, yet never develops as it should., 17. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Location of Culture (Taschenbuch)
Bhabha raises pertinent and fascinating points, yet I never felt as though he really elaborated on them. I was hoping to see Bhabha's opinions on parallels between the past, present and future. Both the previous reviews brought up relevent points, I felt. I wouldn't totally reject Bhabha's ideas as the first reviewer seemed to, yet the second reviewer was much too eager in his praises. In the future I think it would do Bhabha good to diversify his work.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Award-winning opaqueness, 2. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Location of Culture (Taschenbuch)
This offering from Homi Bhaba is definitely in the running to win the grand prize for the most obstruse, deliberately arcane piece of academic prose in the past decade -- no mean feat. I agree wholeheartedly with the first reviewer, and anxiety-ridden grad students everywhere can take their first baby steps towards intellectual self-confidence and professional emancipation by admitting aloud what they silent know: this emperor is bucknaked and doing cartwheels down the boulevard.
