Shows the full breadth and scope of Edward Said's work and of his role as a public intellectual.
On Edward Said at the Limits, Mustapha Marrouchi offers a sensitive critique of Edward Said, one of America's foremost commentators on the Palestinian cause. Marrouchi does justice to the extraordinary life of a complex figure who was fundamentally a humanist committed to the eradication of domination and whose angry and eloquent writings are of fierce relevance to the fragmented world in which we live. The Said story has become the model for the struggle to rewrite colonial history.
Offering the most up-to-date and comprehensive bibliography of Said's work, this is the only single author book devoted solely to Edward Said and his writing.
Mustapha Marrouchi is the author of Signifying with a Vengeance: Theories, Literatures, Storytellers, also published by SUNY Press. He lives between Tunis and Toronto.
