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)

Buchbeschreibung PHISPC/Pearson Education, 2007. Hardcover. Buchzustand: AsNew. First edition. 23 x 29 cm. The volume Science, Technology, Imperialism and War coordinates the concerned themes into an evolving pattern of growth of ideas and institutions with a view to projecting analytically a coherent picture of uniformity of human development in all its aspects. The chapters on Science, therefore, do not begin or end with science as such but are a cognitive endeavour linked to the other concerns of this volume. Likewise, the section on Technology leads the reader to a search for its very probable links with imperialism and war. Imperialism offers four themes in the edited volume: the first one deals with its theories; the second with its linkage with colonialism; while the third and the fourth follow its manifestation in the Russian and British adventures chiefly in central Asia and India. The fact of the dependence of imperialism on war looms large. War, the concluding theme of the exercise, is the saturation point of human efforts to subvert identical species elsewhere, to subjugate and to dominate. Its theories and ramifications-conventional, limited and nuclear-are surveyed critically by competent scholars. The horizon of the chapters is Asian, the landscape and focus Indian.
