Product Details


“This volume reveals the dazzling range of Said’s oeuvre, spanning explorations of political, historical, and literary matters to the studies of humanism, secularism, and theories of intellectualism. . . . An indispensable resource for scholars of cultural studies, history and politics, literature, sociology, anthropology, Western classical music and the arts.” —Library Journal 

“What becomes most evident rereading Said’s work—besides the startlingly clear prose and impeccable scholarship—is how his contrary, original thought has affected other intellectual disciplines.” —Kirkus Reviews

“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 metropolitan West and the decolonizing world can ignore Mr. Said’s work.” —The New York Times Book Review
