"A welcome addition to the growing body of work that connects cultural theory with anticolonial historiography, literary analysis, and issues in contemporary politics. Lloyd's book should interest a wide readership. It will challenge literary critics to deal more directly with political and historiographic issues, just as its deft analyses of literary texts will deepen the analytic perspectives of scholars in history, anthropology, and the social sciences."—Satya P. Mohanty — N/A
"David Lloyd's 1987 book on James Clarence Mangan presented Irish criticism with a challenge that has not yet been taken up. Now he has gathered together his essays on Yeats, Beckett, Heaney, and other writers, placing them in the context of cultural studies and minorities' discourse. I rarely agree with his specific conclusions, but his arguments are extremely difficult to refute. It is clear that we must take serious issue with him."—Denis Donoghue — N/A
"The writing of Ireland exemplifies the crisis of representation. It is a literature of territorial division, Anglocentric appropriation, diasporic peoples and exilic authors, that stages the vivid, visceral struggle to belong, to return, to re-make a tradition. Anomolous States explores these ambivalences of post-colonial identity and nationhood with a memorable brillance. David Lloyd's readings make a considerable contribution to contemporary cultural studies."—Homi K. Bhabha — N/A
