282 pages | 42 B/W Illus.
Updated and expanded throughout with new illustrations and new material, this is the long- awaited second edition of a highly acclaimed and interdisciplinary book which quickly established itself as a seminal text in its field.
"Imperial Eyes is a seminal work in the study of travel writing, demonstrating an inventive use of canonical and non-canonical sources from the archive of European travel writing, and from the colonial 'contact zone.' Its critical insights are drawn eclectically from discourse analysis, gender criticism, postcolonialism, anthropology, and literary theory, drawn together with unflagging political energy. It remains a model of its kind."
