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 metroploitan West and the decolonizing world can ignore Mr. Said's work." --The New York Times Book Review
