Pressestimmen

When Said shows us the Palestinian experience min al-dakhil, from the inside, he means not the inside of the place, but the inside of the mind. Palestine becomes a state of mind. And that is what makes the book so exceptional. It is an extended voyage through the mind of exile. The Nation The power and magic of [Said and Mohr's] collective statement lies in this----no matter how displaced or dispossessed, a decisive border separates the native and the tourist. Jerusalem Post A very personal text, and a very moving one, about an internal struggle: the anguish of living with displacement, with exile... The most beautiful piece of prose... about what it means to be a Palestinian. The Guardian

Einleitungssatz
Caught in a meager, anonymous space outside a drab Arab city, outside a refugee camp, outside the crushing time of one disaster after another, a wedding party stands, surprised, sad, slightly uncomfortable. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen A deeply moving book 8. Oktober 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
"After the Last Sky" is a deeply moving, extremelely thoughtful book. Written by one of the most recognized scholars of the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is nevertheless not essentially a book about politics: Edward Said focuses on the Palestinian people and their private struggles to reclaim their land of Palestine. It is fundamentally a book about memories, and the anxious recognition that what is past cannot be regained. Swiss photographer Jean Mohr's outstanding series of photographs are welcome additions to Said's superlative prose: indeed the author adds contemplative commentary on a number of Mohr's photos. Though written in 1986, "After the Last Sky" must certainly remain an integral part of any reading on the crisis in Palestine, historically and today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great reading, wonderful photography 28. Dezember 1998
Von LOODY
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a must-see/read for anybody interested in a genuine solution to the pressing problems in Palestine. Edward Said's poignant descriptions of both Palestinian woes and the fight to retain identity force one either to reeavaluate his or her notions of the Palestinians (if one is inclined to take Western propaganda for granted), or to further support the Palestinian right to live with increased fervor and empathy. If the text is not given a chance, then the photos pose an even greater challenge: Should we finally all accept responsibility for the faltering, ludicrous "peace process" in the Middle East?

2.0 von 5 Sternen Said rewrites his life story 18. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
It is interesting to compare Edward Said's story of his life with the truth, as reported by Justus Weiner, a human rights lawyer, in September's Commentary. Interested readers are encouraged to check out Weiner's investigation. This raises philosophical questions about truth, double standards of accepting fraud by an academic engaged in political propagandizing, and the validity of Palestinian complaints against Israel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Said has never rewritten his life story 24. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The comment below is false. It claims that the Zionist Justus Weiner has proved that Said is a liar when really Said is a credible author. Please ignore this person's attempt to censor free speech in this country. Also check out "They Dare to Speak Out" by Paul Findley if you are interested in this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Poetic essay 22. September 2000
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book consists of a long personal essay about Palestinian identity which follows the author's thoughts as he reacts to a series of photographs (mostly from 1979) taken by Jean Mohr. It is not a memoir, although the author relates a few early memories of his parents' lives in Palestine and of the arrival of Palestinian refugees in Cairo, where he was living with his family 1948. Mostly, the book focuses on the injustice of a people whose homeland has been violently take away and what it means to be a nation in exile. The photographs are very poignant; it would have been nice to see them in greater detail, but most of them are rather small to accommodate the long text.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Visual Poetry 9. August 2003
Von Giant Panda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Initially, I did not think that a book written in the mid-1980s would be a useful in the fast-changing topic of the Middle East. This was written before the Oslo peace process and before the first Palestinian Intifada, remember. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to find this gem in the library. Visual poetry is the best description I can think of - beautiful photos from the lens of the Swiss master Jean Mohr document Palestinian reality on every page. The photographic narrative is intertwined with a poetic elaboration by Edward Said (in my opinion the best I've seen of his writing). So much information is there, but also so much is left unsaid - for us readers to think about and visualize. Though some of the events in Middle East history may appear absurd, after reading this book it all starts to fit together and make sense. Even events taking place afterwards like the Intifada makes sense after understand the context the this book paints with such wonderful clarity. More books like this are desperately needed!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An insight of the lives of the Palestinians 2. Juni 2001
Von rawana - rawana@hotmail.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is written and compiled beautifuly with the pictures. Edward Said, was not writing a memoir as was suggested by the second reviwer. Said even mentions it. To try and put down the wonderful work of Edward Said by justifying him with this so called human rights lawyer-Justus Weiner is yet another way of demolising a great scholar.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book 1. Februar 2014
Von C. Medine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This work, by Edward Said, has pictures of Palestinian people along with Said's commentaries. It is a kind of autobiography--of Said and of a people. It is incredibly moving, and it contains great analysis by the man who, perhaps, single-handedly made us think about how we use information to justify how we oppress others. It is excellent.
