No single book has encompassed the vast scope of Edward Said's erudition quite like Power, Politics and Culture - a collection of his interviews from the last three decades. In these twenty-nine interviews, Said addresses everything from Palestine to Pavarotti, from his nomadic upbringing under colonial rule to his politically active and often controversial life in America, and reflects on Austen, Beckett, Conrad, Naipaul, Mahfouz and Rushdie as well as fellow critics Bloom, Derrida and Foucault. Said speaks here with his usual candour, acuity and eloquence - confirming that he was in his lifetime among the truly most important intellects of our century.

Reviews

'A fascinating, oblique entry into the mind of one whose own writings ... are a brilliant questioning chronicle of contemporary culture and values' Nadine Gordimer 'This fascinating collection of interviews beautifully manifests these paradoxical self-positionings and deep ambiguities, and in the process offers a portrait - all the more striking for being so unselfconsciously self-conscious - of a vitally interesting individual' A.C. Grayling, Independent on Sunday 'Lucid, passionate ... forthright honesty and steely lucidity' Terry Eagleton, New Statesman 'This collection serves as a kind of intellectual biography: reading interviews is reading a man's life through the people who ask questions. It is difficult to think of any other literary official who would be worth the treatment' Scotsman
