If so I felt that the literary analysis was much blander than it might have been I felt like she was a teacher repeating her point to a class of dullards As to her privileged family I felt the female members were somewhat glossed over Or is the book actually about New Orientalism? If so why such a focus only on RLT? The big deal about Orientalism of all sorts is surely that it is so pervasive There are lots of other books out there to demolish Why didn't she say about this?
