Description

From Oslo to Iraq and the Roadmap is Edward Said's final collection of essays, written between the end of 2000 and early 2003. They offer Said's commentary on the deepening crisis in the Middle East: pre-September 11 to the bombing of the World Trade Centre, through to the bombing of Afghanistan and the early days of the war in Iraq. What has always set Said apart is his ability to state the uncensored truth. 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 and necessary perspective of the events of the last few years.show more

Review quote

'These searing essays refract the reality of the terrible years through a mind with extraordinary understanding, compassion, insight and deep knowledge. They are an invaluable contribution by a truly remarkable person, in his life and work' Noam Chomsky 'In this, Edward Said is at his most brilliant: analytical, yet steadfastly compassionate, he unravels the years of hope and deceit that marked the "Oslo peace plan" in Palestine' John Pilger, New Statesman 'Edward Said is arguably the most consequential literary, cultural, and geopolitical critic of our time' Richard Poirier 'They cover the failure of Bill Clinton's Camp David talks, the second intifada, the 9/11 atrocities and the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. Written in Said's characteristically forthright style, they are always readable' Sunday Business Postshow more
