Summary: In the period of decolonization that followed World War II, a number of scholars, mainly Middle Eastern, launched a sustained assault on Orientalismthe theory and practice of representing the "East" in Western thoughtaccusing its practitioners of misrepresentation, prejudice and bias.

Orientalism: A Reader provides students, scholars and general readers alike with a selection of key readings from this debate, covering a range of areas including myth, imperialism, the cultural perspective, Marxist interpretation and feminist approaches. The aim is to introduce the origins and character of the debate on Orientalism, providing a useful overview of a controversial and problematic concept from a multidisciplinary perspective.

As well as a general introduction, each section and extract is introduced and there is a detailed guide to further reading.
