    Hello,

    I was just wondering if anyone would be able to offer any arguments to the question "to what extent can orientalism contribute to the study of International Relations?"

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    I would recommend reading Christopher Hitchens' pieces on the topic- he was a personal friend of Said's, although disagreed with him on the argument. The first is a review of Dangerous Knowledge: Orientalism and its Discontents by Robert Irwin (http://prosemiteundercover.phpbbnow....612ea91022d84a) and the second is a review of Orientalism by Edward Said (http://www.theatlantic.com/past/docs...9/hitchens.htm).
    You'll be hard-pressed to find a more eloquent take on the matter.
