Praise For…


"Autobiography, Travel and Postnational Identity: Gandhi, Nehru and Iqbal
represents an important and valuable contribution to the fields of nationalism,
travel and autobiography, which will be welcomed by researchers and students from
a multiplicity of disciplines including literary studies, history, geography, politics,
philosophy, postcolonial and cultural studies. As such, I have no hesitation in
recommending this excellent monograph for the readers of this journal to feast upon."Shompa Lahiri, National Identities "Majeed’s textual readings are always carefully argued, and frequently
genuinely insightful. Autobiography, Travel and Postnational Identity
is exemplary both in its placing of autobiographical texts within a historical
and literary context, and in its ability to make connections between that context
and larger issues of concern in postcolonial, travel, and auto/biography
studies."Philip Holden, Biography “Javed Majeed’s third book…is a fascinating read, characterized by an engaging and lucid style, intelligent insights and superb textual analysis. This is a scholarly, exciting, and wide-ranging book that contributes to a number of different fields”. Neelam Srivastava, Interventions
