Product Description


"This book pushes at the limits of postcolonialism and deconstructs some of its certainties--to wit, the smugness that smoothes out complexity in order to make it easier to separate victim from oppressor. Rose shows not only that those in the West are the creators of their own version of the Orient, but that the Orient is embedded, however uncomfortably, in the West, and that there are trading pathways that crisscross between Europe and the Middle East, which must at all cost be remembered and maintained. It is exhilarating to read something so bold, that is reaching so urgently for something beyond itself, so strongly anchored, and yet in search of truths somewhere most people refuse to look."--Ingrid Wassenaar, author of Proustian Passions "Ingrid Wassenaar, author of "Proustian Passions" "
