Orientalism Western Conceptions of the Orient
25th anniversary of first publication
Orientalism is one of the greatest and most influential of books of ideas to be published since the end of the European empires. For generations now it has defined our understanding of colonialism and the empire, and with each passing year its influence becomes, if anything, even greater.
To mark its 25th anniversary, Orientalism rightfully takes its place as a Penguin Modern Classic.
