"[Said’s] combination of flamboyant style and erudite radicalism, honesty and advocacy… makes The Politics of Dispossession necessary and informative for anyone interested in the complexities of the Palestinian question." ( San Francisco Chronicle)
"Radical, cogent, compelling" ( Guardian)
"Said has been the most cogent and eloquent defender of the Palestinians and their right to self-determination... This fine book shows him to be an angry man; it also shows he has much to be angry about" (Ian Gilmour Observer)
"Anyone who wants to engage with an author who has lived the contradictions of an intellectual in politics, or who wishes to understand the deep motivations of the Palestinian national movement, has a duty to read this book and will incur a debt to the man who wrote it" (Christopher Hitchens)
Said's collected essays are incontestable proof of his status as the best writer on the Palestinian struggle, offering passionate, and thoroughly knowledgeable critique of this critical issue.
