Product description

Review

"Although published alongside a traveling exhibition, this fascinating and very readable work is what a museum book ought to be: a well-illustrated, stand-alone study. Edwards has compiled a full examination of this branch of American exoticism and how it permeated the culture from high to low. . . .An exotic, art-historical jewel."--Library Journal



"An intellectually stimulating, much-needed catalogue for an important exhibition of American material culture."--CAA.reviews



"A valuable tool for American historians interested in material culture."--The Historian



"Edwards has drawn together a superb cohort of American and Islamic art historians to describe the curious mix of high and low cultural interests. . . . One great contribution of this [book] is that it situates Orientalism within diverse visual cultures, including architecture, advertising, design, book illustration, dance, and film."--Michael Davidson, Modernism/Modernity
