Culture and Imperialism
Culture and Imperialism is a collection of essays by Edward Said , in which the author attempts to trace the connection between imperialism and culture in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. It followed his highly influential Orientalism , published in Said conceived of Culture and Imperialism as an attempt to "expand the argument" of Orientalism "to describe a more general pattern of relationships between the modern metropolitan west and its overseas territories. In a series of essays, Said argues the impact of mainstream culture mainly British writers of the 19th and early 20th century, like Jane Austen and Rudyard Kipling on colonialism and imperialism ,  and conversely how imperialism, resistance to it, and decolonization influenced the English and French novel. The prototypical modern realistic novel is Robinson Crusoe , and certainly not accidentally it is about a European who creates a fiefdom for himself on a distant, non-European island. On the connection between culture and empire , Said observes that "The power to narrate, or to block other narratives from forming and emerging, is very important to culture and imperialism, and constitutes one of the main connections between them. Said defines "imperialism" as "the practice, the theory, and the attitudes of a dominating metropolitan center ruling a distant territory.
