About this book

Edward Said continues to fascinate and stir controversy, nowhere more than with his classic work Orientalism. Debating Orientalism brings a rare mix of perspectives to an ongoing polemic. Contributors from a range of disciplines take stock of the book's impact and appraise its significance in contemporary cultural politics and philosophy.

Reviews

"Debating Orientalism offers a useful balance between the more historiographical and the more theoretical interventions, and gives an excellent sense of the multiple disciplinary frameworks Said's book invokes and incites. The chapters talk back to each other in intriguing ways, indeed at points argue categorically against each other, giving a sense of immediacy and debate." - Dr. Alex Padamsee, University of Kent, UK
