Edward Said is perhaps best known as the author of the landmark study Orientalism, a book which changed the face of critical theory and shaped the emerging field of post-colonial studies, and for his controversial journalism on the Palestinian political situation.

Looking at the context and the impact of Said's scholarship and journalism, this book examines Said's key ideas, including:
  • the significance of 'worldliness', 'amateurism', 'secular criticism', 'affiliation' and 'contrapuntal reading'
  • the place of text and critic in 'the world'
  • knowledge, power and the construction of the 'Other'
  • links between culture and imperialism
  • exile, identity and the plight of Palestine
  • a new chapter looking at Said's later work and style
