Extract:

"In his highly celebrated but also provoking book Orientalism2, Edward Said (1935 - 2003) embarks on describing a long European tradition "of coming to terms with the Orient that is based on the Orient`s special place in European Western experience"... In this realm, versions of origins are offered and resisted in a continuing dialectic; thus Fanon likens the self-justifying ideological operation of colonialism to the mother "who unceasingly restrains her fundamentally perverse offspring from managing to commit suicide and from giving free rein to its evil instincts."
