Orientalism. Afterwords to the 1995 edition

2002, vol. 2, No. 4, pp. 33–48 [issue contents]
The book “Orientalism” was finished in the end of 1977 and was published one year after. “Orientalism” got a lot of comments, which were partly hostile and partly irrelevant, however, the majority of them were positive and even delighted. “Orientalism” was written in the Borhes’s spirit and due to this it transformed from one book to many. I wanted to discuss here this strange and disturbing diversity of followed versions of “Orientalism”. Certainly, I will try to correct wrong readings of this book and its false interpretations.
