Abstract:

"In From Oslo to Iraq and the Road Map, Said writes about the second intifada and about the so-called peace process, which he terms a kind of "fast-food peace" underscored by "malevolent sloppiness." He discusses the breach of democracy in the last American presidential election and describes the Bush administration as hopeless in its allegiance to the Christian right and to the big oil companies. He writes passionately against the war in Iraq and condemns the "road map" as a plan not for peace but for pacification of the Palestinians. He makes clear the ways in which the U.S. response to 9/11 has further destabilized the Middle East, but finds as well reasons for hope: the Palestinian National Initiative, an organization of grassroots activists who share a burgeoning idea of democracy "undreamed of by the [Palestinian] Authority." What has always set Said apart is his ability to state the uncensored truth about the realities of the Palestinian experience, from land expropriation and dispossession, to assassinations, roadblocks, and house demolitions." "In this book, Said reveals information that never finds its way into the American media, thus providing a real context for our understanding of the Middle East."--Jacket.
