As New; with original price stickers on back cover. Color-illus. black paperback with orange lettering. 394 pp. with no illustrations. The 25th Anniversary Edition of Said's 1978 classic, including a new preface by the author. The "groundbreaking critique of the West's historical, cultural, and political perceptions of the East. In this wide-ranging, intellectually vigorous study, Said traces the origins of 'orientalism' to the centuries-long period during which Europe dominated the Middle and Near East and, from its position of power, defined 'the orient' simply as 'other than' the occident. This entrenched view continues to dominate western ideas and, because it does not allow the East to represnet itself, prevents true understanding. Orientalism remains one of the most important books written about our divided world." Essential reading and still enlightening and relevant.
