Notes

About the Author

Edward W. Said was born in 1935 in Jerusalem, raised in Jerusalem and Cairo, and educated in the United States, where he attended Princeton (B.A. 1957) and Harvard (M.A. 1960; Ph.D. 1964). In 1963, he began teaching at Columbia University, where he was University Professor of English and Comparative Literature. He died in 2003 in New York City.

He is the author of twenty-two books which have been translated into 35 languages, including Orientalism (1978); The Question of Palestine (1979); Covering Islam (1980); The World, the Text, and the Critic (1983); Culture and Imperialism (1993); Peace and Its Discontents: Essays on Palestine and the Middle East Peace Process (1996); and Out of Place: A Memoir (1999). Besides his academic work, he wrote a twice-monthly column for Al-Hayat and Al-Ahram; was a regular contributor to newspapers in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East; and was the music critic for The Nation.

Reviews

"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
