“Alimentary Orientalism” in Asian Review of Books

Alimentary Orientalism: Britain’s Literary Imagination and the Edible East

by Yin Yuan

“The analysis is convincing, grounded in close reading and always in dialogue with other scholars . . . a book of definite interest to those who care about Asia and Asian people and who recognize Orientalism, in its pernicious form, as a concern of the present.”
