    "Before Orientalism argues that medieval travelers were not and could not have been writing from an imperialist perspective as later 'Orientalist' writers are alleged to have done. Kim M. Phillips proves her case most convincingly, and following these travel writers through her examination of their texts is an exceedingly interesting journey.   This brief, wide-ranging book presents an intriguing thesis: that early modern “orientalists,” whether scholars, artists, poets, novelists, theologians, or philosophers, constructed an image of Islam as a religion in thrall to an absolute, despotic, and irrational God as a sublimated response to their own anxiety that the Christian God was just as remote and : Margaret Meserve.

The early modern image of Islam—as seen through Western eyes—is one that has been so radically transformed by time, distance, and cultural mediation that it bears little resemblance to the religion and the culture that it purports to by:   The second chapter of Ivan Kalmar’s strange study of Orientalism in the early modern period opens with an epigraph from Daniel Varisco’s Reading Orientalism: ‘It is time that the issues raised in Orientalism move beyond a referendum on Edward Said’.

Alas, a great deal of space in this book is wasted while Kalmar sets out his points of agreement and disagreement with Said’s : Robert Irwin. The pervasive presence of pure, sublime, abstract Authority in the imagined Orient elicits a concrete physical experience: being watched.
