Edward Said : A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation, Paperback / softback Book

Edward Said : A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation Paperback / softback

Edited by Adel Iskandar, Hakem Rustom


Edward W. Said (1935-2003) ranks as one of the most preeminent public intellectuals of our time.

Through his literary criticism, his advocacy for the Palestinian cause, and his groundbreaking book "Orientalism", Said elegantly enriched public discourse by unsettling the status quo.

This indispensable volume, the most comprehensive and wide-ranging resource on Edward Said's life and work, spans his broad legacy both within and beyond the academy.

The book brings together contributions from thirty-one luminaries - leading scholars, critics, writers, and activists - to engage Said's provocative ideas.

Their essays and interviews explore the key themes of emancipation and representation through the prisms of postcolonial theory, literature, music, philosophy, and cultural studies.

The contributors include: Bill Ashcroft, Ben Conisbee Baer, Daniel Barenboim, Timothy Brennan, Noam Chomsky, Denise DeCaires-Narain, Nicholas Dirks, Marc H.
