Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Shows the full breadth and scope of Edward Said's work and of his role as a public intellectual.

In 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.

"I like Marrouchi's intellectual and moral engagement with the work and struggle of Edward Said. The reader is guided into the intellectual and social-political problems and agonies undergirding Said's work. What emerges is a fascinating picture of a great intellectual and fine human being. In an academic environment populated mostly by conformists and sycophants, Edward Said stands out as one of the very few public intellectuals willing and able to speak 'truth' to power and to call ruling elites back from brutal power games to the path of justice and human decency. This book addresses questions central to humanity at large and not just to limited academic disciplines." — Fred R. Dallmayr, author of Beyond Orientalism: Essays on Cross-Cultural Encounter

Mustapha Marrouchi is the author of Signifying with a Vengeance: Theories, Literatures, Storytellers, also published by SUNY Press. He lives between Tunis and Toronto.
