    Can the Subaltern Speak Words | 37 Pages. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak Can the Subaltern Speak? An understanding of contemporary relations of power, and of the Western intellectual's role within them, requires an examination of the intersection of a theory of representation and the political economy of global capitalism. Written by one of the leading social theorists of our age, Decoding Subaltern Politics: Ideology, Disguise, and Resistance in Agrarian Politics is an indispensible guide to the study of subaltern culture and politics and is essential reading for political scientists, anthropologists, sociologists and historians alike.

      As discussed in a previous post, History is the Conquest Song of the Victors. Historians who have developed an understanding of this problem have created the field of "Subaltern Studies" -- which studies history from the point of view of those who lost the battles. A very different point of view emerges when we look. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak Can the Subaltern Speak? An understanding of contemporary relations of power, and of the Western intellectual's role within them, re­ quires an examination of the intersection of a theory of representation and the political economy of global capi­ talism.
