English | 23 Feb. 2017 | ISBN: 3319503723 | 318 Pages | PDF | 2.01 MB

This study explores the work of Western avant-garde writers who traveled to and wrote about Asia and North Africa. Though exoticist in outlook, many of these writers were also anti-colonialist and thus avoided some of the pitfalls of academic orientalism by assuming an aesthetics of diversity while employing strategies of provocation and reciprocity.

American Orientalism: The United States and the Middle East since 1945

American Orientalism: The United States and the Middle East since 1945 by Douglas Little
The University of North Carolina Press; 3rd Edition | April 1, 2008 | English | ISBN: 0807858986 | 464 pages | PDF | 1010 KB

Douglas Little explores the stormy American relationship with the Middle East from World War II through the war in Iraq, focusing particularly on the complex and often inconsistent attitudes and interests that helped put the United States on a collision course with radical Islam early in the new millennium. After documenting the persistence of "orientalist" stereotypes in American popular culture, Little examines oil, Israel, and other aspects of U.S. policy.

And this story stands to shatter our preconceptions of Orientalism.
