9780748614417: Orientalism: A Reader

In the period of decolonisation that followed the end of the Second World War a number of scholars, mainly Middle Eastern, launched a sustained assault on Orientalism - the theory and practice of representing 'the Orient' in Western thought -accusing its practitioners of misrepresentation, prejudice and bias. As a result an intense debate occurred regarding the validity of the charges made, involving not only Orientalists but students of history, anthropology, sociology, women's studies and the media. Orientalism: A Reader provides the student with a selection of key readings from this debate, covering a range of areas including myth, imperialism, the cultural perspective, Marxist interpretation and feminist attitudes. The origins and character of the debate on Orientalism are introduced, as well as the intellectual foundations of the assault made and the nature of the debate which ensued. Coverage begins with nineteenth-century material from thinkers such as Hegel and Marx, and moves through extracts from Nietzsche, Gramsci and Foucault to contemporary work from, for example, Bryan Turner, John MacKenzie and Edward Said. As well as a general introduction, each section is introduced and the extracts are placed in context to guide the student carefully through this complex debate.

From the Back Cover:

Orientalism

At a crucial moment in the history of relations of East and West, Orient and Occident, Christianity and Islam, Orientalism provides a timely account of the subject and the debate.


In the 1960s and 1970s a powerful assault was launched on orientalism ¿ the study of the Arab world. At the centre of this attack was Edward Said, whose devastating critique accused Western orientalists of creating stereotypical images of the Orient, thereby facilitating imperialism and colonialism and inciting chauvinism and racism.

The debate ranged for beyond the traditional limits of `dry and dust¿ orientalism. As current as ever, it involves questions concerning the nature of identity, the nature of imperialism, Islamophobia, myth, Arabism, racialism, intercultural relations and feminism.

Charting the history of the debate about the nature of orientalism, this stimulating account revisits the arguments and surveys the associated case studies.

Alexander Lyon Macfie has written widely on the modern history of the Near and Middle East. His books include `The Eastern Question¿ (1996) and `The End of the Ottoman Empire¿ (1998) and `Orientalism: A Reader¿ (2000)..

About the Author:

Alexander Lyon Macfie's publications include The Eastern Question (1988; 1996), The Straits Question (1993), Ataturk (1994), and The End of the Ottoman Empire (1998).
