Fifteen scholars primarily from English departments across the British Commonwealth address the problems of teaching "Commonwealth literature" a literature with a diverse range of viewpoints and topics such as cowboy songs, Iranian feminists, the ascent of Everest, Natal women settlers, and Afrikaans exile-poets. Smith's collection displays an attempt to find common attitudes, values, and beliefs within such wide-ranging literature, thus countering current trends by searching for commonality amongst diversity. Though the anthology shows how postcolonial studies can be successfully deployed on Commonwealth literature, it is not merely a defense of postcolonial studies, but also a questioning of its approach and methods.
