Widely regarded as the most important social commentator since Jean-Paul Satre, Edward Said was a proud and fearless Palestinian intellectual, as well as the constant thorn in Ariel Sharon's side. In this collection of posthumous essays, he outlines the Middle-East conflict from the Arab perspective and seems unafraid to criticize both enemies and friends alike. American foreign policy and the pro-Jewish lobby are cross-examined, so too are decades of Israeli violence and oppression. Surprisingly, however, Said directs his most ferocious attacks at his own people and, in particular, at the Palestinian spokesman Yasser Arafat. He pours scorn on his 'leader's' every move, especially those which seem to pander to the United States. It is a dangerous stance to take and one that has, on several occasions, incurred the wrath American presidents from Reagan through to Bush. Still, Said seemed to thrive on controversy, and this thought-provoking and compendious book is proof of that fact. It is a bold effort to rewrite Palestinian history and a valiant attempt to point out the direction of the nation's future. (Kirkus UK)
The essays in "From Oslo to Iraq and the Roadmap" were written between the end of 2000 and early 2003. They offer Edward Said's commentary on the deepening crisis in the Middle East: pre 9/11, to the bombing of the World Trade Center, through to Afghanistan and the early days of the war in Iraq. This collection is filled with the eloquence, anger and the immense humanity for which Said was so loved and admired. Urgent, thought-provoking and troubling, it gives us a valuable perspective of the events of the last few years.
