The seminal work that has redefined our understanding of colonialism and empire, with a preface by the author Stimulating, elegant and pugnacious Observer Magisterial Terry Eagleton In this highly-acclaimed work, Edward Said surveys the history and nature of Western attitudes towards the East, considering orientalism as a powerful European ideological creation - a way for writers, philosophers and colonial administrators to deal with the otherness of eastern culture, customs and beliefs. He traces this view through the writings of Homer, Nerval and Flaubert, Disraeli and Kipling, whose imaginative depictions have greatly contributed to the West s romantic and exotic picture of the Orient. Drawing on his own experiences as an Arab Palestinian living in the West, Said examines how these ideas can be a reflection of European imperialism and racism. Beautifully patterned and passionately argued New Statesman Very exciting ... his case is not merely persuasive, but conclusive John Leonard, New York Times
