Despite the playfulness of the above statement, it is indeed true that postcolonial studies is a field that has grown, and continues to grow, very quickly. It is in this context of rapid growth that Davis positions his work on the postcolonial's literary component. He recognizes the vast diversity of postcolonial literatures and the fact that such diversity means there can never be a comprehensive, expert knowledge, and so, in his introduction, he is careful to define his terms, outline problems, and to state exactly what will be dealt with in each of the chapters of the book.
