LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London, United Kingdom: Allen Lane - Penguin, 2006. 410 pages index notes Irwin charts the origins of Orientalism in this case, the study of the Middle and near East and its foremost practitioners, from Ancient Greece up to the present day. In doing so, he finally banishes the ghosts of Edward Said's Orientalism, which branded this rich and wondrous field of study a weapon of imperialism. Irwin shows that, whether making philological comparisons between Arabic and Hebrew, cataloguing the coins of Fatimid Egypt or establishing the basic chronology of Harun al-Rashid's military campaigns against Byzantium, these scholars have been unified not by politics or by ideology but by their shared obsession.. First Edition. Buckram. New/New.
