"This is a bold and intellectually honest attempt to deal with the ethnography of writing focusing on the post-Foucauldian problem of power-knowledge as it applies to the unequal relationship between centers of academic power located in the United States and Europe and various peripheries located mostly in the third world."-Gananath Obeyesekere, Princeton University

"Canagarajah deepens and sharpens our understanding of the luxury of ordinary research, writing, and publishing practices even as he guides us through a thicket of extraordinary postcolonial barriers to the democratization of academic scholarship and publication."-Linda Brodkey, University of California, San Diego

"Will stand as a landmark for decades to come."-Lester Faigley, University of Texas

A Geopolitics of Academic Writing critiques current scholarly publishing practices and principles, exposing the inequalities in the way academic knowledge is constructed and legitimized. A. Suresh Canagarajah-a periphery scholar now working in (and writing from) the center-examines the broad Western conventions governing academic writing and argues that their dominance leads to the marginalization or appropriation of the knowledge of Third World communities.
