- This is the first major study that deeply explores Conrad's perception and construction of the Orient in his Malay fiction. While it entertains a sustained dialogue with past and recent studies of Conrad's handling of colonial cross-cultural encounters, imperial ideology and race politics, this collection of original essays extends the debates on these key issues. The authors adopt a variety of critical and methodological perspectives - socio-political, anthropological, philosophical, postcolonial, poststructuralist, historical, and linguistic - in order to illuminate the richness, complexity and multi-dimensional character of Conrad's work.0Also part of: The Conrad Eastern and Western Perspectives Series; XXI.
