“The voice of the late Edward Said can still be heard in all its trenchant vitality.”– Irish Times Books of the Year 

Banned by the Freud institute in Vienna, this controversial lecture eventually became Edward Said’s final book. Freud and the Non-European builds on Said’s abiding interest in the psychoanalyst’s work to examine Freud’s assumption that Moses was an Egyptian and from there explore the limits of identity. Such an unresolved, nuanced sense of identity, Said argues, might one day form the basis for a new understanding between Israelis and Palestinians.

Reviews

“Undeniably brilliant.”

“Thought-provoking and addresses complex issues surrounding a work composed near the end of Freud’s lifetime … an intriguing critique of Freud’s work that is complemented by Rose’s commentary.”

“My pre-eminent book of the year.”

“The voice of the late Edward Said can still be heard in all its trenchant vitality.”
