[Said's] combination of flamboyant style and erudite radicalism, honesty and advocacy... makes The Politics of Dispossession necessary and informative for anyone interested in the complexities of the Palestinian question. * San Francisco Chronicle *Radical, cogent, compelling * Guardian *Said has been the most cogent and eloquent defender of the Palestinians and their right to self-determination... This fine book shows him to be an angry man; it also shows he has much to be angry about -- Ian Gilmour * Observer *Anyone who wants to engage with an author who has lived the contradictions of an intellectual in politics, or who wishes to understand the deep motivations of the Palestinian national movement, has a duty to read this book and will incur a debt to the man who wrote it -- Christopher Hitchens

Said's collected essays are incontestable proof of his status as the best writer on the Palestinian struggle, offering passionate, and thoroughly knowledgeable critique of this critical issue.
Edward Said was born in Jerusalem in 1935. In 1951 he attended a private preparatory high school in Massachusetts, America and he went on to study at Princeton University for his BA and at Yale for his MA and PhD. He became University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Said was bestowed with numerous honorary doctorates from universities around the world and twice received Columbia's Trilling Award and the Wellek Prize of the American Comparative Literature Association. He is best known for describing and critiquing 'Orientalism' and his book on the subject was published in 1978. He died in 2003.
