Inhaltsangabe:

Transference of orientalist images and identities to the American landscape and its inhabitants, especially in the West?in other words, portrayal of the West as the ?Orient??has been a common aspect of American cultural history. Place names, such as the Jordan River or Pyramid Lake, offer notable examples, but the imagery and its varied meanings are more widespread and significant. Understanding that range and significance, especially to the western part of the continent, means coming to terms with the complicated, nuanced ideas of the Orient and of the North American continent that European Americans brought to the West. Such complexity is what historical geographer Richard Francaviglia unravels in this book.

 Since the publication of Edward Said?s book, Orientalism, the term has come to signify something one-dimensionally negative. In essence, the orientalist vision was an ethnocentric characterization of the peoples of Asia (and Africa and the ?Near East?) as exotic, primitive ?others? subject to conquest by the nations of Europe. That now well-established point, which expresses a postcolonial perspective, is critical, but Francaviglia suggest that it overlooks much variation and complexity in the views of historical actors and writers, many of whom thought of western places in terms of an idealized and romanticized Orient. It likewise neglects positive images and interpretations to focus on those of a decadent and ostensibly inferior East.

 We cannot understand well or fully what the pervasive orientalism found in western cultural history meant, says Francaviglia, if we focus only on its role as an intellectual engine for European imperialism. It did play that role as well in the American West. One only need think about characterizations of American Indians as Bedouins of the Plains destined for displacement by a settled frontier. Other roles for orientalism, though, from romantic to commercial ones, were also widely in play. In Go East, Young Man, Francaviglia explores a broad range of orientalist images deployed in the context of European settlement of the American West, and he unfolds their multiple significances.

Über den Autor: Richard V. Francaviglia is Professor of History at the University of Texas at Arlington, where he serves as Director of the Center for Greater Southwestern Studies and the History of Cartography.

Buchbeschreibung Utah State University, Logan, 2011. Hardcover. Buchzustand: NEW. 350pp. Octavo [24 cm] Charcoal gray paper covered boards with a decorative gilt stamped title on the spine. With a dust jacket. From the jacket- "Perceiving pyramids and promised lands in the desert, Bedouins on the plains, or Mount Fujis above the forest, Americans often shuffled Near and Far Eastern images and identities into those they imposed on their own west. In their growing acquaintance with the new world of the West, Euro-Americans turned not just to the old world but to what they perceived as its most exotic and dramatic parts- the imagined world they knew as the Orient.".
