Orientalism by Edward W Said( Book )

291 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in 19 languages and held by 4,943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme is the way in which intellectual traditions are created and transmitted ... Orientalism is the example Mr. Said uses, and by it he means something precise. The scholar who studies the Orient (and specifically the Muslim Orient), the imaginitive writer who takes it as his subject, and the institutions which have been concerned with teaching it, settling it, ruling it, all have a certain representation or idea of the Orient defined as being other than the Occident, mysterious, unchanging and ultimately inferior."--Albert Houran -- from http://www.amazon.com (Jan. 28, 2014)

Joseph Conrad and the fiction of autobiography by Edward W Said( Book )

37 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in English and Turkish and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward W. Said locates Joseph Conrad's fear of personal disintegration in his constant re-narration of the past. Using the author's personal letters as a guide to understanding his fiction, Said draws an important parallel between Conrad's view of his own life and the manner and form of his stories. The critic also argues that the author, who set his fiction in exotic locations like East Asia and Africa, projects political dimensions in his work that mirror a colonialist preoccupation with ""civilizing"" native peoples. Said then suggests that this dimension should be considered when read

38 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a major collection of writingtimely, impassioned, and controversial - from our most important Arab scholar."--Jacket

Reflections on exile and other essays by Edward W Said( Book )

35 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Long-Awaited Collection of literary and cultural essays by Edward W. Said, the first since Harvard University Press published The World, the Text, and the Critic in 1983, reconfirms what no one can doubt -- that Said is the most impressive, consequential, and elegant critic of our time -- and offers further evidence of how much the fully engaged critical mind can contribute to the reservoir of value, thought, and action essential to our lives. As in the title essay, the widely admired "Reflections on Exile," the fact of his own exile and the fate of the Palestinians have given both form and the force of intimacy to the questions Said has pursued. Taken together, these essays -- from the famous to those that will surprise even Said's most assiduous followers -- afford rare insight into the formation of a critic and the development of an intellectual vocation. Said's topics are many and diverse, from the movie heroics of Tarzan to the machismo of Ernest Hemingway to the shades of difference that divide Alexandria and Cairo. He offers major reconsiderations of writers and artists such as George Orwell, Giambattista Vico, Georg Lukacs, R.P. Blackmur, E.M. Cioran, Naguib Mahfouz, Herman Melville, Joseph Conrad, Walter Lippmann, Samuel Huntington, Antonio Gramsci, and Raymond Williams. Said makes a strong and eloquent attack on what he calls "aestheticized powerlessness," a habitual stance of many in the academy. Most of the key debates in the humanities over the last thirty years are taken up in this book, and a number of them are given definitive treatment here
Beginnings : intention and method by Edward W Said( Book )

57 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in English and Turkish and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blaming the victims : spurious scholarship and the Palestinian question by Edward W Said( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1948 war which drove them from their homeland, the Palestinian people have consistently been denied the most basic democratic rights. [This book] shows how the historical fate of the Palestinians has been justified by spurious academic attempts to dismiss their claim to a home within the boundaries of historical Palestine and even to deny their very existence. Beginning with a thorough expose of the fraudulent assertions of Joan Peters concerning the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine prior to 1948, the book then turns to similar instances in Middle East research where the truth about the Palestinians has been systematically suppressed: from the bogus - though still widely believed - explanations of why so many Palestinians fled their homes in 1948, to today's distorted propaganda about PLO terrorism. The volume also includes sharp critiques of the wide consensus in the USA which supports Israel and its territorial ambitions while maintaining total silence about the competing reality of the Palestinians.-Back cover
The end of the peace process : Oslo and after by Edward W Said( Book )

41 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soon after the Oslo accords were signed in September 1993 by Israel and Palestinian Liberation Organization, Edward Said predicted that they could not lead to real peace. In these essays, most written for Arab and European newspapers, Said uncovers the political mechanism that advertises reconciliation in the Middle East while keeping peace out of the picture. Said argues that the imbalance in power that forces Palestinians and Arab states to accept the concessions of the United States and Israel prohibits real negotiations and promotes the second-class treatment of Palestinians. He documents what has really gone on in the occupied territories since the signing. He reports worsening conditions for the Palestinians critiques Yasir Arafat's self-interested and oppressive leadership, denounces Israel's refusal to recognize Palestine's past, and--in essays new to this edition--addresses the resulting unrest. In this unflinching cry for civic justice and self-determination, Said promotes not a political agenda but a transcendent alternative: the peaceful coexistence of Arabs and Jews enjoying equal rights and shared citizenship
Palestine by Joe Sacco( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Representations of the intellectual : the 1993 Reith lectures by Edward W Said( Book )

86 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it mean to be an intellectual at a time when a large proportion of the population is in the information business? Are intellectuals merely the specialized servants of special interests or do they have a large responsibility? In these wide-ranging essays, which were originally delivered as part of the BBC's prestigious Reith Lectures, one of our most brilliant and fiercely independent public thinkers addresses those questions with extraordinary eloquence. Edward Said sees the intellectual as an exile and amateur whose role it is "to speak the truth to power" even at the risk of ostracism or imprisonment. Drawing on the examples of Jonathan Swift and Theodor Adorno, Robert Oppenheimer and Henry Kissinger, Vietnam and the Gulf War, Said explores the implications of this idea and shows what happens when intellectuals succumb to the lures of money, power, or specialization. Representations of the intellectual embodies the very values that it upholds: relentless honesty, rigor of thought and conscience, and a sublime disdain for dogma."--Page 4 of cover
After the last sky : Palestinian lives by Edward W Said( Book )

47 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A searing portrait in words and photographs of Palestinian life and identity that is at once an exploration of Edward Said's own dislocated past and a testimony to the lives of those living in exile."--Jacket
Parallels and paradoxes : explorations in music and society by Daniel Barenboim( Book )

58 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating exchange between Daniel Barenboim, Music Director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, and Edward W. Said, the leading expert on the Middle East, grew out of the acclaimed Carnegie Hall Talks. A unique and impassioned discussion about politics and culture, it touches on many diverse subjects: the importance of a sense of place; the differences between writing prose and music; the conductors Wilhelm Furtwangler and Arturo Toscanini; Beethoven as the greatest sonata composer; the difficulty of playing Wagner; the sound at Bayreuth; the writers Balzac, Dickens, and Adorno; the importance of great teachers; and the power of culture to transcend all national and political differences--something they both witnessed when they brought together young Arab and Israeli musicians to play at Weimar in 1999. Although Barenboim and Said have very different points of view, they act as catalysts for each other. The originality of their ideas makes this a book that is both accessible and compelling for anyone who is interested in the culture of the twenty-first century
On late style : music and literature against the grain by Edward W Said( Book )

48 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his last book, Edward Said looks at a selection of essays, poems, novels, films, and operas to determine what late style may explain about the evolution of the creative life. He discusses how the approaching death of an artist can make its way "with anachronism and anomaly" into his work, as was the case in the late work of Thomas Mann, Richard Strauss, Jean Genet, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, and C.P. Cavafy. Said examinees Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Genet's Le captif amoureux and Les paravents, Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, Visconti's film of Lampedusa's The Leopard, Euripides' The Bacchae and Iphigenia at Aulis, and Thomas Mann's Death in Venice, among other works."--Jacket

Annotation Language in America; new world meditations and mediations. Cultural historian Morse (retired Secretary of the Latin American Program at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC) inquires into the ways in which speech and poetry evoke the common historical experience of North and South America, and examines the transatlantic of European languages. He employs political ideology to contrast the traditions of Anglo and Latin America, while surveying contemporary pressures for ideological change. In a highly eclectic way, he considers the problems involved in conveying the Latin American experience to North Americans. The originally announced title: Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Nationalism, colonialism, and literature by Terry Eagleton( Book )

32 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three essays in this volume were originally published as individual pamphlets by the Field Day Theatre Company in Derry, Nothern Ireland. Founded in 1980 as a theatre cmpany, Field Day has eveolved as a publisher concerned with the typically Irish blend of political and cultural (mainly literary) forces which requires fresh analysis in view of the existing Irish political crisis. As a result, Field Day has published a series of pamphlets, in groups of three, to which the three essays printed here are the most recent contribution. Each of the essays deals with a different aspect of nationalism and the role of cultural production as a force in understanding the aftermath of colonization. In his essay, Terry Eagleton identifies two decolonizing stages: the achievement of national autonomy and personal autonomy. Frederic Jameson discusses the problematic relationship between the Third World and the "first world". Edward Said focuses on the poetry of Yeats and the role it played in the "liberationist" movement of decolonization
Music at the limits by Edward W Said( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music at the Limits is the first book to bring together three decades of Edward W. Said's essays and articles on music. Addressing the work of a variety of composers, musicians, and performers, Said carefully draws out music's social, political, and cultural contexts and, as a classically trained pianist, provides rich and often surprising assessments of classical music and opera."--Jacket
