While many historians and commentators have analyzed the phenomenon of the imperial power wielded by Britain (and France) in the 19th century, this book analyzes its impact on the culture of the period. The author focusses on the way this cultural legacy has embedded itself in the Western view of the East, and affects our relationship with the formerly colonized world at every level, both social and political. The author also wrote "Orientalism".Hide synopsis

Bright cover shows minor handling.; Demonstrates that Western imperialism's most effective tools for dominating other cultures have been literary in nature as much as political and economic. He traces the themes of 19th-and 20th-century Western fiction and contemporary mass media as weapons of conquest and also brilliantly analyzes the rise of oppositional indigenous voices in the literatures of the "colonies." Said would argue that it's no mere coincidence that it was a Victorian Englishman, Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton, who coined the phrase "the pen is mightier..." Very highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand how cultures are dominated by words...; 380 p.

Great analysis from Said. History, Sociology, Anthropology, Literature... Everything connected. From Fannon to C?saire. From Hobsbawm to Gramsci.
A study with feet on earth. Well written and reflexive. From the building of imperialism to the world today.
