Now in paperback, this is the critically acclaimed investigation of the history of anti-Westernism. The hardback edition sold 5,000 copies. "One of the best things yet to be published on the 'Clash of Civilisations'" Niall Ferguson, "Daily Telegraph"
'Occidentalism' is an investigation into the hostile stereotypes of the Western world that fuels the hatred at the heart of movements such as Al Qaeda. A work of extraordinary range and erudition, it enlarges significantly our understanding of the world in which we live.
