Question about English (US)

"The „West‟s‟ claim to knowledge of the East gave the „West‟ the power to name, and the power to control. This concept is essential to understanding of colonialism and therefore recognizing post colonialism (Said, 2000: 34)."

The resource is p119, leftside very bottom on a PDF which I am reading in this URL "" ("The position of language in development of colonization."
