Orientalism transposed: Impact of the colonies on British culture

Julie F. Codell, Dianne Sachko Macleod

Research output: Book/ReportBook


First published in 1998, this volume reflects that, ever since the publication of Edward Saids Orientalism twenty years ago, scholars have tested his thesis against the wider application of his terms to cultural practices and the rhetoric of power. The cultural impact of the British on their colonies has been extensively investigated but only recently have scholars begun to ask in what ways British culture was transformed by its contact with the colonies.
