Product Details


“Grandly conceived . . . urgently written and urgently needed. . . . No one studying the relations between the metropolitan West and the decolonizing world can ignore Mr. Said’s work.’ —The New York Times Book Review

Culture and Imperialism has an eloquent, urgent topicality rare in books by literary critics. . . . Said is a brilliant and unique amalgam of scholar, aesthete, and political activist. . . . His learning is global.” —Washington Post Book World

“Rough-and-ready scholarship from today’s street fight in the humanities. . . . Said reads passionately and bravely. . . . He challenges everyone to read fiction in the most comprehensive manner possible.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“Readers accustomed to the precision and elegance of Edward Said’s analytical prowess will not be disappointed by Culture and Imperialism. Those discovering Said for the first time will be profoundly impressed.” –Toni Morrison

“In Culture and Imperialism, Edward Said’s immense erudition and interpretive audacity are brought to bear on a variety of literatures, reanimating the terms of his title and discovering, in the process, how some of the most revered cultural productions call upon the same energies that go into the building of empires. His book will likely become a classic of contemporary criticism.” –Richard Poirier
