Soon after the Oslo accords were signed in September 1993 by Israel and Palestinian Liberation Organization, Edward Said predicted that they could not lead to real peace. In these essays, most written for Arab and European newspapers, Said uncovers the political mechanism that advertises reconciliation in the Middle East while keeping peace out of the picture.

A true intellectual was Edward Said. This is a series of articles published in the 1990s covering his opinions on the Oslo accords, the Wye agreement, Palestinian government and comments on conversations with diverse Palestinians (intellectuals and thinkers, living in Palestine and Israel) and some Israeli thinkers. Very depressing that so little in terms of peace and dialogue and true state development for the Palestinians has happened since then. Required reading.
I am a huge fan of Said, and this is a nice collection of essays on the Middle East Peace Process. But, I think I prefer Said's musings on refugees or Orientalism.
I just couldn't get into this collection of Said's essays on the Peace Process. Too dense for me these days. Mebbe will try again later.
A Must Read when it comes to understanding the Palestine view of the so called Peace Process.
