Cultural Theorist. Widely considered one of the most seminal and provocative thinkers of his generation, Edward Said is best known in academic circles as the author of "Orientalism", a scathing, post-modern critique claiming that colonial-era research into Middle Eastern culture functioned as an instrument of power and legitimacy in colonial oppression. To the general public, however, Said was best known as an advocate for the Palestinian cause, drawing controversy in 1993 by denouncing the Oslo peace accords and in 2000 by throwing a rock toward an Israeli guardhouse on the Lebanese border. Always a polarizing figure, he was deemed a "Nazi" by the Jewish Defence League in 1985, but revered by others as the greatest figure in the emerging field of post-colonial studies. (bio by: Stuthehistoryguy)
