If you are hungry about the truth, if you are angered by injustice and political crime then, this is the book for you to read.
I did not regard this book as historic or even political. This book has been written by a intellectually strong author who is writting out of personal experience and personal tragedy.
He writes about the trouble of his people, how they suffered and still are. He attacks the current regime and suggests solutions. He criticises the Oslo Peace Treaty in a concise and clear manner and explains why there will never be peace in either Israel or Palestine unless human and political perceptions change and the human rights (of both sides) are recognised.

Edward Said's book is a powerful, thoughtful statement from a committed Palestinian nationalist and highly respected academic. I do not agree with all he says but, nevertheless, I found the book thought provoking and engaging. Read it and understand the need for a just peace, rather than simply a 'peace process' which amounts to little more than surrender by the Palestinians and the formalisation of their almost total dispossession.

I loved this book, Professor Said's writing is interesting, informative and a joy to read. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about what is happening in Ireal/Palestine and why the 'peace process' has broken down. You may not agree with everything but it's guaranteed to give fresh insight and make you think again about the issues. He paints a very different picture than the mainstream media, his view on Yassir Arafat is particularly interesting... But Edward Said does more than just criticise, his analysis and vision ofers a glimmer of hope for a real peace.dublin

Said wrote this book when the "peace process" had a momentum that meant that anyone who so much as dared critisise Oslo and what followed, was labelled an extremist or militant, by the Israelis, the Americans and the Palestinian Authority, in unison.
Read the book now and you will see that Said's analysis of the Oslo agreement, why it was bound to fail and how it was likely to create a violent reaction is so spot-on that even if you are one who routinely disparages everything that Said does and everything he says, it is impossible to conclude anything other than that his reading of Oslo and where it would end was amazingly prescient.
If you want to understand how a “peace process” which was meant to offer so much to both Israelis and Palestinians could have ended in the slaughter at Jenin, read this book.
