Item Description...
The Africa of his ancestry, the Caribbean of his birth, the Britain of his upbringing, and the United States where he now lives are the focal points of award-winning writer Caryl Phillips' profound inquiry into evolving notions of home, identity, and belonging in an increasingly international society.
At once deeply reflective and coolly prescient, A New World Order""charts the psychological frontiers of our ever-changing world. Through personal and literary encounters, Phillips probes the meaning of cultural dislocation, measuring the distinguishing features of our identities-geographic, racial, national, religious-against the amalgamating effects of globalization. In the work of writers such as V. S. Naipaul, James Baldwin, and Zadie Smith, cultural figures such as Steven Spielberg, Linton Kwesi Johnson, and Marvin Gaye, and in his own experiences, Phillips detects the erosion of cultural boundaries and amasses startling and poignant insights on whether there can be an answer anymore to the question "Where are you from?" The result is an illuminating-and powerfully relevant-account of identity from an exceedingly perceptive citizen of the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
New World Writer  Nov 25, 2008
Phillips is the next thing, all right, right up there with the most exciting young intellectual novelists, very much like Coetzee, but black and lacking Coetzee's Eurocentric sensibility. The perspective is that of an Englishman from the colonies, a bit like Orwell, Naipaul, or Lessing. Phillips is, in fact, a Caribbean author, with African roots and an education rooted in the fields of Eton. He is a gentlemen scholar, an amateur, if you will, and not an academic. In this regard he reminds one of Sontag or Vidal, perhaps even of Camus. Unlike Sontag and Coetzee, however, his center of gravity is post-colonial rather than central European. He doesn't reveal an affinity for Kafka, as much as for American jazz and an affection for Marvin Gaye. He is very good, however, on major literary figures such as James Baldwin, Gordimer, and Derek Walcott. Clearly, he is drawn to African -American lit and culture, but this collection's greatest contribution may be in his appreciations of lesser known figures such as Glissant, James, and Chamoiseau. He is well-read, witty, even erudite, but he can be tough and penetrating, harsh, but never mean. His dissection of V. S. Naipaul is hard-going but persuasive. These are well-written essays, a fine collection of pieces from a versatile, generous writer who loves literature.
