about

Edward Said is perhaps best known as the author ofOrientalism, a book which changed the face of critical theory and shaped the emerging field of post-colonial studies.
This volume explains Said's key ideas, their contexts and impact, with reference to both his scholarship and journalism. These ideas include:
* the place of text and critic in the world
* knowledge, power and the construction of the 'Other'
* the links between culture and imperialism.
First published in 1999, this book has been fully updated and revised for the reader new to Said's work. The result is the ideal guide to one of today's most engaging critical thinkers for all literary students.
Bill Ashcroft is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of New South Wales. Pal Ahluwalia is Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Adelaide.
