" Best known for THE LORDS OF HUMAN KIND (1969), V. G. Kiernan created a work ‘concerned with the impressions and opinions of Europeans and non-Europeans about one another, their attitudes and behaviour towards one another, in the century or century and a half before the First World War, the epoch when Europe's importance in the world was greatest.’ The Palestinian intellectual Edward Said regarded it as a central influence in developing his modern-day classic Orientalism (1978)." - publisher.
