Taking its starting point from Said's Orientalism (1978) which 'shows how the discourse of "otherness" became entrenched in the cultural texts of Europe', this essay explores 'how that vaunted superiorityof the European, in comparison with the endemic inferiority of the non-European, is interrogated by three Australian writers' (309).

They point out ways and means of responsibly assessing colonial predicaments and postcolonial developments in six regions shaped in the past by the British Empire and still associated today through their allegiance to the idea of a Commonwealth of Nations: North America, The Caribbean, Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand and the Pacific.The contributors show how a new ethic of literary self-assertion, interpretative mediation and critical responsiveness can remove the deeply ingrained prejudices, silences and taboos established by discrimination against race, class and gender.
