The Spivak reader : selected works of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak ( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among the foremost feminist critics to have emerged to international eminence over the last fifteen years, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak has relentlessly challenged the high ground of established theoretical discourse in literary and cultural studies. Although her rigorous reading of various authors has often rendered her work difficult terrain for those unfamiliar with poststructuralism, this collection makes significant strides in explicating Spivak's complicated theories of reading

The rise of oriental travel : English visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720 by Gerald M MacLean ( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book retells the stories of how four seventeenth-century Englishmen journeyed around the Ottoman Mediterranean, from Istanbul through the Levant and Holy Land into Egypt, and across North Africa to the Regency of Algiers. Contrary to the hostile declamations of Protestant preachers, they all found much to admire, from the multi-culturalism of the Ottoman system to the food, weather and styles of life. Beginning with Thomas Dallam, the skilled artisan sent by Queen Elizabeth to present his clockwork organ to Sultan Mehmed III in 1599, Professor Gerald MacLean subsequently examines William Biddulph, chaplain to the Protestant expatriates of Aleppo, Henry Blount, a self-appointed intelligencer who was knighted in 1641, and 'T. S.' whose libidinal Adventures in Algerian captivity mark the nation's taste for historical and romantic fiction. The book closes with an examination of evidence for British women travelling in the Ottoman empire before Lady Mary Wortley Montagu." "This is the first book to consider the contemporary historical setting of these visits as seen from the Ottoman side, and uses previously unpublished sources to show the importance of archival research for the study of travel literature. As the author explains, 'I have travelled in the footsteps of all four and have noted some instances of curious coincidence.'"--BOOK JACKET
Materialist feminisms by Donna Landry ( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Materialist Feminisms investigates the crucial theoretical and political debates that have determined the course of British and American feminism over the last thirty years. As intellectual terrain has shifted during these decades from Marxism to cultural materialism and poststructuralist literary theory, questions of race and ethnicity, sexuality, postcoloniality, and green politics have converged and sometimes collided with the categories within feminism, but analyze many of the most important texts and movements of contemporary cultural theory. Offering not so much a unified history as an analysis of important moments within these debates, this book examines the work of such feminist theorists as MichUle Barrett, Judith Butler, Rosalind Coward, Donna Haraway, bell hooks, the m/f collective, Tania Modleski, Jacqueline Rose, Gayle Rubin, Hortense Spillers, and Gayatri Spivak. Materialist Feminisms includes new, exemplary readings of feminist detective, African-American, and postcolonial fiction, three kinds of textures commodity currently fetishized in the literary marketplace. What might the success of these kinds of writing signify about politics and desire in contemporary Anglo-American culture? Demonstrating how the poststructuralist critique of essences and identities need not end in a complete paralysis of political action, as has sometimes been claimed, Materialist Feminisms argues that feminism, socialism, and deconstruction are not theoretical dead ends, but names for unfinished business." -- Back cover
Britain and the Islamic world, 1558-1713 by Gerald M MacLean ( Book )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Before they had an empire in the East, the British travelled into the Islamic world to pursue trade and to form strategic alliances against the Catholic powers of France and Spain. First-hand encounters with Muslims, Jews, Greek Orthodox, and other religious communities living together under tolerant Islamic rule changed forever the way Britons thought about Islam, just as the goods they imported from Islamic countries changed forever the way they lived. Britain and the Islamic World tells the story of how, for a century and a half, merchants and diplomats travelled from Morocco to Istanbul, from Aleppo to Isfahan, and from Hormuz to Surat, and discovered a world that was more fascinating than fearful. -- Book jacket

Looking East : English writing and the Ottoman Empire before 1800 by Gerald M MacLean ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looking East explores early modern English attitudes toward the Ottoman Empire in the seventeenth century. To a nation just arriving on the international scene, the Ottoman Empire was at once the great enemy and scourge of Christendom, and at the same time the fabulously wealthy and magnificent court from which the sultan ruled over three continents with his great and powerful army. By taking the imaginative, literary and poetic writing about the Ottoman Turks and putting it alongside contemporary historical documents, the book shows that fascination with the Ottoman Empire shaped how the English thought about and represented their own place within the world as a nation with increasing imperial ambitions of its own
