Exploring the writings, poetry, and art of representative individuals including Catherine the Great, Alexander Pushkin, Alexander Borodin, and leading orientologists, Schimmelpenninck argues that the Russian Empire's bi-continental geography, its ambivalent relationship with the rest of Europe, and the complicated nature of its encounter with Asia have all resulted in a variegated and often surprisingly sympathetic understanding of the East among its people.
Recensie s Russian historical perceptions of Asia are a fascinating and important topic, both for what they say about Russian policy outside Europe and for what they tell us about the Russians themselves. As the balance of global power tilts towards Asia, where Russians position themselves between the West and the Orient is certain to become of ever-greater significance. No Western scholar is better equipped than Professor Schimmelpennick to write on this theme, and his new book is a tour-de-force.
Schimmelpenninck deftly explores numerous dimensions of this engagement, including scholarly Orientology, literature, art, music, material culture, and Orthodox mission. By concentrating on the fascinating lives and careers of representative scholars, artists, writers, and composers - Russians and non-Russians alike - Schimmelpenninck invests his story with a compelling human dimension.
He situates Russia's Orientalism in broader European patterns, but ultimately insists on the specificity - and profound ambiguity - of Russia's engagement with Asia. In light of Russians' inability to construe the East as an 'other' wholly distinct from themselves, Russian Orientalism in this book represents a significant departure from the Orientalism of Edward Said, which serves as Schimmelpenninck's foil.
I know of no other book that makes this case so systematically, and it is certain to generate controversy and debate. With a wonderful touch for texts and personalities, David Schimmelpenninck reveals how Russian views of 'the East' were at once similar and different from what we're used to thinking of as a European Orientalist norm. In fact, as he argues, there was no single unmoving framework for perceiving Asian cultures, neither in Russia nor in the West. Instead, what is truly distinctive about the Russian case - and what Schimmelpenninck helps us to see in a new and full light - is how important Asia became to the Russians' understanding of themselves.
Anyone interested in the history of identity and culture in Russia will find much to take from this book. Toon meer Toon minder. Reviews Schrijf een review. Bindwijze: Hardcover.
