Review of the hardback: 'Barbour's narrative is always elegant and his analysis shrewd and erudite. ... The book is liberally illustrated throughout and provides pictorial indices to the construction of the Orient in the imagination. It is a welcome book in the Cambridge series Studies in Renaissance Literature and Culture, and it opens up new terrain for Orientalist studies that rarely go back further than the eighteenth century.' Journal of Theatre Research International Review of the hardback: 'Before Orientalism contributes to a growing body of scholarship that helps us re-think early English encounters with the East, and by doing so, better understand the early colonial period.' Journal of Colonialism and Coloniam History
