This book is dedicated to Edward Said (1935-2003), a major literary and cultural critic, who has been instrumental in promoting decolonization through his analytical and critical writing. Scholarly articles tackle various aspects of Said's writing on fiction, criticism, politics, and music, and the volume includes an extensive bibliography of Edward Said. "Edward Said and Critical Decolonization" strives to cover the multifaceted career of Said, with emphasis on his critical contribution to decolonization and resistance to hegemony. There are moving testimonies by friends and relatives, students and colleagues, which throw light on his personality. An article by Said himself on the idea of the university is published here for the first time. The volume also includes articles exploring in depth Said's political, critical, and aesthetic positions - including his views on intellectuals and secular criticism, on traveling theory, and humanism. And Said's thought is explored in relation to other major thinkers such as Freud and Foucault.
