RIP Edward Said. A good man, and a brave scholar, who achieved that rare and precious feat of giving theoretical scholarship relevance to the way in which ordinary people experience the world.

Lots of obits, here, here, here, here and here. Probably loads more too. An archive of his work is here. And finally, last month a 25th-anniversary edition of Orientalism, the book that made his name, was published by Penguin. Said wrote a new foreword to this edition to encompass the events of the last two years, an adaptation of which can be found here.
