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.
