Additional Information

En estos tiempos en que los medios de comunicación nos inundan y se ven inundados por imágenes y estereotipos que se refieren al Islam y a los musulmanes, Edward W. Said nos ofrece una descripción rigurosa y esclarecedora de la formación y desarrollo de estas «ideas recibidas» o tópicos que muchas veces impiden o sesgan nuestra visión.

En Orientalismo, Edward W. Said nos ofrece una descripción esclarecedora de la formación y desarrollo de los tópicos sobre el islam y los musulmanes, que muchas veces impiden o sesgan nuestra visión. Se nos muestra cómo estos «clichés ideológicos» obedecen a los intereses y estrategias del poder dominante y señala la dificultad para el mundo occidental de pensar sobre Oriente si antes no se logra romper esos prejuicios que distorsionan nuestra lectura. Asimismo nos muestra cómo la relación entre Oriente y Occidente es una relación de poder, construida sobre la subordinación de la idea de Oriente al fuerte imaginario occidental asentado en la superioridad centralista de un «nosotros» enfrentado a un «ellos», lo no europeo, vivido como «lo extraño».

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This book, first published in 1978, remains one of the most influential books in the Social Sciences, particularly Ethnic Studies and Postcolonialism. Said is best known for describing and critiquing "Orientalism", which he perceived as a constellation of false assumptions underlying Western attitudes toward the East.

In Orientalism Said claimed a "subtle and persistent Eurocentric prejudice against Arabo-Islamic peoples and their culture." He argued that a long tradition of false and romanticized images of Asia and the Middle East in Western culture had served as an implicit justification for Europe and the US' colonial and imperial ambitions. Just as fiercely, he denounced the practice of Arab elites who internalized the US and British orientalists' ideas of Arabic culture. Peter Ganim's narration gives the work an elegant and knowledgable voice.
