Inhaltsangabe: From Jane Austen to Salman Rushdie, from Yeats to the media coverage of the Gulf War, this is an account of the roots of imperialism in European culture. 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".
" Culture and Imperialism has an eloquent, urgent topicality rare in books by literary critics" (Camille Paglia)
"Readers accustomed to the precision and elegance of Edward Said's analytical prowess will not be disappointed by Culture and Imperialism. Those discovering Said for the first time will be profoundly impressed" (Toni Morrison)
"Edward Said helps us to understand who we are and what we must do if we are to aspire to be moral agents, not servants of power" (Noam Chomsky)
