Read in June, 2012

Such a fascinating and in depth book about the West's cultural depictions of the East and its need to dominate/control it (a gross simplification but you get the general idea). It's a very weighty and dense book that needs a lot of dedication to get through, but it's certainly worth the challenge for the knowledge you're rewarded with.
