Orientalism By Edward Said

Orientalism By Edward Said book pdf download free from here. “Edward W. Said’s ‘Orientalism’, published in 1978, is a groundbreaking work that introduced the term ‘Orientalism’ to critique the West’s often negative depiction of the East, which includes Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East.

Said posits that Orientalism, as a Western academic discipline studying the Eastern world, is intrinsically tied to the imperialistic societies that birthed it, rendering much of the work in Orientalism politically charged and subservient to power. He further argues that the practices of the Arab ruling class suggest they have internalized a romanticized version of Arab culture constructed by French, British, and later, American Orientalists.
