The New Ideology of Imperialism.
Two particular and interrelated "isms" are central to these challenges. These are postmodernism and postcoloniality. The two represent an age of intellectual curiosity but also disorder given their attempts to redefine history and especially the place of the Third World. While one would have expected reversals in the initial compartmentalization of the globe into Euro- America as opposed to the 'rest of us', the contemporary state of knowledge has not helped subvert this Eurocentric image. Postmodernism and postcolonialism are intellectual movements celebrating the latest ideology of imperialism.
