"Tolkien's writing remained entirely rooted in the context of his British and European roots. For example, the political geography of Middle Earth is like that of historical Europe; the forces of freedom are centered in the west, while invasions come from the south and the east. What has been called Herbert's "anthropological" outlook gave him the opportunity to step outside the West and entertain Islamic and Eastern outlooks."
