By means of precise and informed questioning, David Barsamian leads us into the brilliant mind of Edward W. Said. This conversation covers the decline of the American Left, the predicament of the liberation struggle in Palestine, further elaborations on Said’s previous works Orientalism and Culture and Imperialism, the western generalizations of Arab culture, and imperialism as seen through the prism of western literature (Joseph Conrad, Jane Austen, T.S. Eliot, Albert Camus, V.S. Naipaul, Amos Oz, and more).
