From the distinguished author of Orientalism, The Question of Palestine is a powerfully moving account of one of the most hotly debated issues in the world today: the emergence of the modern Palestinian nation and its confrontation with Zionism and Israel. Edward Said argues the plight of four million scattered Palestinians who have been disenfranchised and deprived of their homeland. With a new preface and epilogue this Vintage edition is brought up-to-date in the light of the Middle East peace talks in Madrid.
