Publisher Comments:

The noted critic and a Palestinian now teaching at Columbia University,examines the way in which the West observes the Arabs.

Review:

"The theme is the way in which intellectual traditions are created and transmitted....Orientalism is the example Mr. Said uses, and by it he means something precise. The scholar who studies the Orient (and specifically the Muslim Orient), the imaginitive writer who takes it as his subject, and the institutions which have been concerned with teaching it, settling it, ruling it, all have a certain representation or idea of the Orient defined as being other than the Occident, mysterious, unchanging and ultimately inferior." Albert Hourani, New York Review of Books

Description:

Includes bibliographical references and index.

it is one of the most important performance in the last century as a relied reference which can help any searcher to end his survey .mr Edwards has really reformed a new views about orietalism , and where the ancient orietalist missed and failed on their points.
i would like really to get that book for free if it possible.
thanks
