Best known for his work Confessions of an English Opium Eater, the Victorian writer Thomas De Quincey was a journalist and propagandist of Empire, of oriental aggression, and of racial paranoia who harbored and expressed the most ferocious and brutal denunciation of Orientals. This remarkable book is an account of De Quincey's fears of all things oriental; it is also an extraordinary analysis of the psychopathology of mid-Victorian imperialist culture.
