This impressive and important collection of essays constitutes a much needed, and thus far underexamined and undertheorised, analysis of the relationship between two colonial formations--Ireland and India. Eschewing monolithic oppositions between coloniser and colonised and emphasisiing translation, interchange, interaction--points of convergence and divergence--between the two, this collection provides a nuanced, complex account of their relationship. In the process, it has much of value to say about the modalities of British colonialism, while opening up the field of colonial/postcolonial studies to a new archive.
