Culture and Imperialism

Culture and Imperialism


Following his profoundly influential study, Orientalism, Edward Said now examines western culture. From Jane Austen to Salman Rushdie, from Yeats to media coverage of the Gulf War, Culture and Imperialism is a broad, fierce and wonderfully readable account of the roots of imperialism in European culture.


  • Culture and Imperialism has an eloquent, urgent topicality rare in books by literary critics
