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".

Rezension: "In Culture and Imperialism, Edward Said's immense erudition and interpretive audacity are brought to bear on a variety of literatures, reanimating the terms of his title and discovering, in the process, how some of the most revered cultural productions call upon the same energies that go into the building of empires. His new book will likely become a classic of contemporary criticism." --Richard Poirier

"Grandly conceived . . . urgently written and urgently needed. . . . No one studying the relations between the metropolitan West and the decolonizing world can ignore Mr. Said's work.' --The New York Times Book Review
"Culture and Imperialism has an eloquent, urgent topicality rare in books by literary critics. . . . Said is a brilliant and unique amalgam of scholar, aesthete, and political activist. . . . His learning is global." --Washington Post Book World
"Rough-and-ready scholarship from today's street fight in the humanities. . . . Said reads passionately and bravely. . . . He challenges everyone to read fiction in the most comprehensive manner possible." --Philadelphia Inquirer
"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

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. Printed Pages: 918. Artikel-Nr. 674
