The late Edward Said remains one of the most influential critics and public intellectuals of our time, with lasting contributions to many disciplines. Much of his reputation derives from the phenomenal multidisciplinary influence of his 1978 book Orientalism. Said's seminal polemic analyzes novels, travelogues, and academic texts to argue that a dominant discourse of West over East has warped virtually all past European and American representation of the Near East. But despite the book's wide acclaim, no systematic critical survey of the rhetoric in Said's representation of Orientalism and the resulting impact on intellectual culture has appeared until today. Drawing on the extensive discussion of Said's work in more than 600 bibliographic entries, Daniel Martin Varisco has written an ambitious intellectual history of the debates that Said's work has sparked in several disciplines, highlighting in particular its reception among Arab and European scholars. While pointing out Said's tendency to essentialize and privilege certain texts at the expense of those that do not comfortably it his theoretical framework, Varisco analyzes the extensive commentary the book has engendered in Oriental studies, literary and cultural studies, feminist scholarship, history, political science, and anthropology. He employs "critical satire" to parody the exaggerated and pedantic aspects of post-colonial discourse, including Said's profound underappreciation of the role of irony and reform in many of the texts he cites. The end result is a companion volume to Orientalism and the vast research it inspired. Rather than contribute to dueling essentialisms, Varisco provides a path to move beyond the binary of East versus West and the polemics of blame. Reading Orientalism is the most comprehensive survey of Said's writing and thinking to date. It will be of strong interest to scholars of Middle East studies, anthropology, history, cultural studies, post-colonial studies, and literary studies.

Better Left Unsaid is in the unseemly position of defending censorship from the central allegations that are traditionally leveled against it. Taking two genres generally presumed to have been stymied by the censor's knife—the Victorian novel and classical Hollywood film—this book reveals the varied ways in which censorship, for all its blustery self-righteousness, can actually be good for sex, politics, feminism, and art. As much as Victorianism is equated with such cultural impulses as repression and prudery, few scholars have explored the Victorian novel as a "censored" commodity—thanks, in large part, to the indirectness and intangibility of England's literary censorship process. This indirection stands in sharp contrast to the explicit, detailed formality of Hollywood's infamous Production Code of 1930. In comparing these two versions of censorship, Nora Gilbert explores the paradoxical effects of prohibitive practices. Rather than being ruined by censorship, Victorian novels and Hays Code films were stirred and stimulated by the very forces meant to restrain them.

• Karan was looking at the pendulum of the wall clock with some familiarity and chose not to react. • When she herself does not act on what she preaches, how can she expect from others for the same? • Half-hearted decisions cannot speak for themselves. • Suddenly something unsaid was said between them. • She signed the statement without even reading it. What worse could have happened anyway! • You were right, looks are deceptive. What we see is not always true. ‘Unsaid: the voice within’ is a collection of short stories depicting emotional complexities and feelings we go through our daily lives. Sometimes we express these feelings; while at other times either we do not or we cannot! However, completeness of our materialistic lives is challenged by hollowness deep inside when these feelings remain unattended for long.

Here's the diary of a soul who finally found courage to express the truths that must be told. Conveying the ways in which filth trickled by and eroded every piece of humanity left inside. Here's a challenge to the world in all the atrocities it must hide. The forbidden challenge against actions speaking louder than words, here's the voices that haven't been heard. No more lies that must be told, no more anguish left to hold. Here's an opportunity to lift the weight of the world off your back, a first and forlorn possibility to attack. In acknowledgment that truths are filtered thoroughly, let's not be blind to all the carnage that we see, and finally be able to know that this chaos that'll be, is that the chaos surrounding our souls inevitably. Hear the truths in all its lies, take note and hear them through your hearts avertable demise.

The editors and contributing authors of this volume have taken a truly pioneering and courageously challenging look at the state of cross-cultural theory and practice. In confronting directly and honestly a broad range of cross-cultural issues they have succeeded in formulating a thoughtful and innovative framework for progress in this complex and demanding field. Amongst the numerous issues examined with thoroughness and insight, the following may be identified as of central importance: Perceptions and experiences of 'sameness' and 'difference'; 'collectivist' and 'individualist' cultural tendencies; internalised and institutionalised racism; religious beliefs and spiritualities; kinship roles and familial values; sexism, poverty and beliefs about mental health. Supported and illustrated with excellent clinical material these issues receive impressive exploration. Probing and perceptive about the relationships between clients and practitioners and between mental health professionals themselves, this volume offers both conceptually and practically a genuinely enriching and groundbreaking guide that points the way forward in a spirit of confidence and hope.
