Abstract: This review discusses this volume which unites European and Latin American scholars from various fields. While the title emphasizes the terms "postmodern" and "postcolonial", the book remains faithful to the wider project of interdisciplinarity and probes issues as diverse as globalization, modernity and transculturation. However, according to the editors the common denominator is the varying treatment of postmodernity and postcoloniality, as applied to selected literary texts from Latin America (9). De Toro and Ceballos subdivide the book into three sections: the first favours historiographical and new historicist approaches, while the remaining essays, save one, concentrate more exclusively on postcolonialism and bhs, 86 (2009) Reviews of Books 719 postmodernity. The final section consists of Flávio R. Kothe's focus on the literary canon.
