Author(s): Edward W Said
Final collection of essays by the esteemed thinker for our times, Edward Said (1935-2003) 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. First published 2004. About the Author: Edward W.
