Overview

Edward Said, the renowned literary and cultural critic and passionately engaged intellectual, is one of our era's most formidable, provocative, and important thinkers.  For more than three decades his books, which include Culture and Imperialism, Peace and Its Discontents, and the seminal study Orientalism, have influenced not only our worldview but the very terms of public discourse.

The Edward Said Reader includes key sections from all of Said's books, from the groundbreaking 1966 study of Joseph Conrad to his new memoir, Out of Place. Whether he is writing of Zionism or Palestinian self-determination, Jane Austen or Yeats, music or the media, Said's uncompromising intelligence casts urgent light on every subject he undertakes. The Edward Said Reader will prove a joy to the general reader and an indispensable resource for scholars of politics, history, literature, and cultural studies: in short, of all those fields that his work has influenced and, in some cases, transformed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the leading thinkers of the age."--The New York Observer

"Edward Said is the most distingished and cultural critic now writing in America." --Cornel West

"Said is a brilliant and unique amalgam of scholar, aesthete, and political activist...[He] challenges and stimulates our thinking in every area." --Washington Post Book World

"No one studying the relations between the metroploitan West and the decolonizing world can ignore Mr. Said's work." --The New York Times Book Review

Matz
This anthology succeeds in condensing the work of an intellect defines otherwise by its great expanse...The chronological approach encourages us to focus on the continuity in Mr. Said's thought amidst the great fluctuations in his material. Thsi volume gives us Edward Said in his ferocious unity.
New York Observer
