Read full description of the books:On Palestine contains two of Edward Said’s essays, both highly critical of the situation of the Palestinians — under Israeli occupation, and a hapless leadership. The details of the suppression are not central to these essays — these are already well-known. The problem is the interpretation. That is why these essays remain as fresh today as when they were first written. The book also contains Raja Shehadeh’s Edward Said Memorial Lecture, 2014, and an Introduction by Vijay Prashad.

Edward W. Said was born in Jerusalem and raised in Egypt until his parents sent him to the United States in 1951.

He was a professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University in New York and held his chair until his death at 67.
