The Question of Palestine
The Question of Palestine
This original and deeply provocative book was the first to make Palestine the subject of a serious debate- one that is now more critical than ever. With the rigorous scholarship that he brought to his influential Orientalism and can exile's passion (he is Palestinian by birth and has been a member of the Palestine National Council), Edward W. Said traces the fatal collision between two peoples in the Middle East and its repercussions in the lives if both the occupier and the occupied-as well as in the conscience of the west. more info
