Description

Product Description

Updated and expanded throughout with new illustrations and new material, this is the long- awaited second edition of a highly acclaimed and interdisciplinary book which quickly established itself as a seminal text in its field.

Review

"Imperial Eyes is a seminal work in the study of travel writing, demonstrating an inventive use of canonical and non-canonical sources from the archive of European travel writing, and from the colonial ''contact zone.'' Its critical insights are drawn eclectically from discourse analysis, gender criticism, postcolonialism, anthropology, and literary theory, drawn together with unflagging political energy. It remains a model of its kind."

- Nigel Leask, Glasgow University, UK

"an engaging and exciting book." - Research in African Literatures

"a fascinating book ... thoroughly, even excitingly, readable." - Asahi Evening News

Pratt, a linguist, attempts to write a history through the debunked, deterministic, and pseudo-scientific lens of Marxist theory. She doesn''t overtly say so, but her frequent references to some imagined conspiracy of the "European Bourgeois" to achieve "global hegemony" make the poverty of her social scientific analysis clear. She is entirely uncritical of existing historical narratives, and here sophomoric attempts at humor by mocking her "European Bourgeois" through the use of thick sarcasm make this read more like a smear-campaign against men who have been dead for a century than an actual history. But if you''re looking at this book, you probably have to buy it for a class like me- you poor soul.
