Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 323 pages. Published in 2004. Posthumous collection of essays. One of the most important books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Edward W. Said's "From Oslo To Iraq And The Road Map". They represent the author's final words on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the widening Mideast Crisis. Most of the essays were written when Edward W. Said remained active towards the end of his life in the Palestinian Movement. "These searing essays refract the reality of terrible years through a mind with extraordinary understanding, compassion, insight, and deep knowledge. They are an invaluable contribution by a truly remarkable person, in his life and work" (Noam Chomsky). Chomsky is eminently quotable because if there is anyone even more controversial than Edward W. Said, the greatest Palestinian-American intellectual of the 20th century, it is probably Noam Chomsky, the greatest Jewish-American linguist and radical political commentator of our time. The book also comes with a Foreword by another intellectual giant, Tony Judt, the late great Jewish Anglo-American political and intellectual historian. An absolute "must-have" title for Edward W. Said collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest literary and political writer/thinkers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDWARD W. SAID TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0747573433. Bookseller Inventory # 14443
Synopsis: The essays in "From Oslo to Iraq and the Roadmap" were written between the end of 2000 and early 2003. They offer Edward Said's commentary on the deepening crisis in the Middle East: pre 9/11, to the bombing of the World Trade Center, through to Afghanistan and the early days of the war in Iraq. 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 perspective of the events of the last few years.

The University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University , Said wrote twenty-three books which include the seminal Orientalism, Culture and Imperialism and most recently Parallels and Paradoxes also published by Bloomsbury.
