Abstract

In this work, Edward Said analyzes the U.S. political arena and U.S. society, with regard to the Palestinian cause. He argues that civil society is more receptive to the rights of the Palestinian people than the political elite, and urges the Palestinian media and political movements to target US civil society to a greater extent.
