Description

In engaging with the richly varied and seminal scholarship of Edward Said, "Waiting for the Barbarians" aims to recover the notion of culture as a collective, hybrid and plural experience, in light of the political imperative that rules our present. In bringing together some of the figures most closely associated with Said and his scholarship, this comprehensive volume looks at Said, the literary critic and public intellectual, Palestine, and Said's intellectual legacy: the future through the lens of his work.
