Orientalism is one of the greatest and most influential of books of ideas to be published since the end of the European empires.
For generations now it has defined our understanding of colonialism and empire and with each passing year its influence becomes if anything even greater.
Providing an overview of Western attitudes towards the East, this book sets out to challenge established Western views of the Orient and of the Arab and Islamic world. Divided into three parts, it examines the scope of orientalism, orientalist structures and orientalism now. -- Kirkus UK
