Description

Academic, cultural and political critic Edward Said has long been considered one of the world's most compelling and versatile public figures. But no single book has encompassed the vast scope of his stimulating erudition quite like "Power, Politics and Culture" - a collection of his interviews from the last three decades. In these 29 interviews, Said addresses everything from Palestine to Pavarotti, from his nomadic upbringing under colonial rule to his politically active and often controversial life in America, and reflects on Austen, Beckett, Conrad, Naipaul, Mahfouz and Rushdie as well as fellow critics Bloom, Derrida and Foucault. Said speaks with his usual candour, incisiveness and eloquence - confirming that he is among the truly most important intellects of our century.
