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. To mark its 25th anniversary, ORIENTALISM rightfully takes its place as a Pengun Modern Classic.

This book is pretty heavy going. Not only because of the impossible depth that the text wants to reach, but also because of some of the confronting content that he presents. Definitely not a casual read, but an excellent text for those wanting to better understand the nature of European imperialism!
