Edward Said ~ Orientalism
This classic book
- published in 1978- has been highly influential and
controversial in postcolonial studies and other fields. In the book, Said
effectively redefined the term "Orientalism" to mean a constellation
of false assumptions underlying Western attitudes toward the Middle East. This
body of scholarship is marked by a "subtle and persistent Eurocentric
prejudice against Arabo-Islamic peoples and their culture." He argued that

projection of neoliberal societies' disjunctures.

Defiance" - a point of rebellion against domestic tyranny and globalized
disempowerment that signifies no less than the end of Postcolonialism.
