Reviews

'This collection of chapters critically interrogates Orientalism by repositioning the 'gaze of the West' from perspectives of the East; drawing from Asia's rich legacy and its experience of Westernization, the chapters are crafted with a distinct 'voice' offering insights and thought-provoking ideas particularly for students and researchers in postcolonial studies.' - Abdul Rahman Embong, Emeritus Professor in Sociology of Development, Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (IKMAS), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia
