Description
 

In this landmark work, for which he has written a new Introduction, one of our foremost public thinkers examines to origins and repercussions of the medias monolithic images of Islam. Combining political commentary with literary criticism, Edward Said reveals the hidden assumptions and distortions of fact that underlie even the most objective coverage of the Islamic world. In so doing, Covering Islam continues Saids lifelong investigation of the ways in which language not only describes but also defines political reality.
