9780198279792: Occidentalism: Images of the West

This work is an investigation of images of Western cultural identity. Said's Orientalism revolutionized Western understanding of non-Western cultures by showing how Western images shaped the Occidental view of the Orient, but those who follow Said have not until now reflected that understanding back onto Western societies. This volume shows how images of the West shape people's conceptions of themselves and others, and how these images are in turn shaped by members of Western and non-Western societies alike. The contributors describe and explicate these images from a variety of areas, from Western academic writing to popular culture, from societies within and outside the West, to show how power and conflict shape such conceptions. It will be of great interest to scholars of anthropology and sociology, cultural studies, and human geography.

This volume shows how images of the West shape people's conceptions of themselves and are in turn shaped by members of Western and non-Western societies alike.
