The past as legacy and project: postcolonial criticism in the perspective of indigenous historicism.
The era of global capitalism calls for new global relations, informed by a grasp of contemporary structures of economic, political, and cultural power and by memories of earlier visions of society. Otherwise, Arif Dirlik argues, Eurocentrism and ethnic diversity find expression in conflict.
