About this book

Eurocentrism is the current object of a global critique, which has the potential to be as significant as Marxist and Feminist critiques have been. This critique focuses on and dissects the paradigms that have emanated from the European Enlightenment.

"A critique in the proper sense of the term: challenges conventional orthodoxy and provides an alternative, more enlightened world view" - Roger Owen, A.J. Meyer Professor of Middle East History,Harvard University
