    y The Body in the Library Leigh Dale (editor), Simon Ryan (editor), Amsterdam : Rodopi , 1998 Z1169408 1998 anthology criticism 'The body is increasingly understood as being at the centre of colonial and post-colonial relationships and textual productions. Creating and circulating images of the undisciplined body of the "other" was and is a critical aspect of colonialism. Likewise, resistance to colonial practices was also frequently corporeal, with indigenous peoples appropriating, parodying, and subverting those European practices which were used to signify the "civilized" status of the colonizing body. The Body in the Library reads representations of the corporeal in texts of empire.' (Publisher's blurb) Amsterdam : Rodopi , 1998 pg. 237-247
