The Washington Post Book World "Ornamentalism is well written and closely argued."--Southern Humanities Review "Offers a fresh perspective on the British Empire and its creators."--Chicago Tribune "Like everything that Cannadine writes Cited by: A much needed theorization of Asiatic femininity in the Western imagination that thinks without moralizations, Ornamentalism is a brilliant, groundbreaking book that shows how the ideology of race renders subjects excessively visible but also simultaneously hard to see." - 5/5(1).

Cannadine's title, Ornamentalism, sets the book in opposition to Edward Said's famous work Orientalism, which I haven't read yet (although I've read other Said). Opposition may be too strong a word; rather, Cannadine's book is a counterpoint to Said's/5. Ornamentalism is the first book to focus on Renaissance accessories, their histories and meanings.

The collection's eminent contributors bring accessories to the center of a discussion about material culture, dress, and adornment, exploring their use, significance, and multiple lives/5(2).

Ornamentalism covers the British attitudes towards their Empire during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Cannadine argues that the British took a hierarchical view of their empire, ruling it on the basis of what they supposed to be traditional English government, which devolved from the monarch to the local nobility and gentry/5(7).

A much needed theorization of Asiatic femininity in the Western imagination that thinks without moralizations, Ornamentalism is a brilliant, groundbreaking book that shows how the ideology of race renders subjects excessively visible but also simultaneously hard to see.".

Ornamentalism offers one of the first sustained and original theories of Asiatic femininity. Examining ornamentality, in lieu of Orientalism, as a way to understand the representation, circulation, and ontology of Asiatic femininity, this study extends our vocabulary about the woman of color beyond the usual platitudes about objectification/5.

Cannadine is an adventurous, original and highly accessible historian, and he has sought to resolve this paradox by examining the last years of Empire and motherland - this "vast interconnected world" - through a single lens.
