Painful read, and far less important than Said's Orientalism. Each chapter digs deep to find controversy and without the authors having the ability to debate his conclusions it seems extremely critical without much substance. Occasionally I agreed with him but it was rare and only in passing. Also, if you enjoy authors who use foreign words without explanation or when they say things like Joyceian, Foucautian, Saidian, etc. etc. etc. without explanation then you will enjoy this book.
