الكتاب يناقش بعض مؤلفات ادوارد سعيد بتأييد لمعظمها وتوضيح ارتجالي من حميد دباشي لبعض المفاهيم والنظريات بالاضافة لبضعة مؤلفات لكتاب آخرين منهم غاياتري سبيفاك. النقاش كان أصعب مما توقعت. فقدت الكاتب في كثير من الصفحات لجهلي في كثير من المصطلحات ذات العلاقة والمفاهيم الأساسية. لكن الفائدة الي كسبتها شخصياً من كتابه هي اقتباساته الحرفية لادوارد سعيد مما جعله كتابي التالي للقراءة. لا أخفي إعجابي بسلاسة شرحه لمفاهيمه الخاصة وسرد الوقائع بطريقة واضحة. سأبدأ بكتاب الاستشراق اذهلتني اقتباساته.

لم اكمل الكتاب وقرأت المقدمة والفصل الاول فقط، فالكتاب محشوا بالمصطلحات المعقدة والترجمة ليست مترابطة ففي كثير من المواضع لا تعرف كيف وصلت اليها ولا المقصود منها.

الكتاب أشبه بLiterature Review وكأنه يستعرض دراسات سابقة ولكن بشكل ممل للغاية.
