Occidentalism by James G. Carrier
Book DescriptionOccidentalism is an investigation of images of Western cultural identity. Edward Said's Orientalism revolutionized Western understanding of non-Western cultures by showing how Western projected images shaped the Occidental view of the Orient, but those who follow Said have not until now reflected that understanding back onto Western societies. Occidentalism shows how images of the West shape people's conceptions of themselves and others, and how these images are in turn shaped by members of Western and non-Western societies alike. The contributors describe and explicate these images in a variety of areas, from Western academic writing to popular Western culture, from societies within and outside the West, to show how power and conflict shape such conceptions.

300 years ago, people made the most of what they used, or got it in trade from their neighbours. Now, no one seems to make anything, and we buy what we need from shops. This book describes the cultural and historical process of these changes and looks at the rise of consumer society in Britain and the United States.
