This book strives to cover the multi-faceted career of Edward Said, (1935-2003) 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 for the first time in the English section of the book, in addition to two of his articles that appear for the first time in Arabic translation in the Arabic section. The volume also includes articles exploring in depth Said's political, critical, and aesthetic positions - including his views on the Palestinian question and exile, on Orientalism and representation, on intellectuals and secular criticism, on traveling theory, music, and humanism. And Said's thought is explored in relation to other major thinkers such as Marx, Freud, and Foucault. The international diversity of the contributors - from Japan to Mexico, and from Egypt to India - reflect Said's own crossing of geographical and disciplinary borders to become an intellectual of the world, speaking on behalf of the voiceless.
