Ma Baad Nau Aabaadiyaat

Urdu Kay Tanazur Main
Nasir Abbas Nayyar
This book adequately covers the subject of the theories and practice of Post Colonialism as reflected in Urdu Literature. This topic is included in the BA (Hons.) and MA courses of Urdu Literature in Pakistan, but so far, barring a few scattered articles, there is no full-length treatment of the topic. The author’s treatment of the topic, as well as that of the colonial legacy of Urdu Literature, is of a high quality. He has convincingly argued that the essence and existence of Modernism and Conservatism ascertained by Urdu writers can be traced to the competing interpretations of the grand narrative of Europe.
