Edward Said and the Writing of History by Shelley Walia
(Postmodern Encounters)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Said famously argued in 'Orientalism' that the West developed, at the peak of colonial expansion, a body of knowledge that imperialists could use to gain power. Walia investigates the need for alternative 'subaltern' histories and the influences - Foucault, Gramsci - that inspire them.
