    1. * محتوای کتابادوارد سعید در این کتاب اصل حرفش این است که فلسطینی ها باید به دور از مداخله ی مذهب و ملی گرایی، و صرفا با نظر به حاق واقعیت زندگی شان - همان تلاش های روزمره برای پیش بردن کارهایشان در کشورهای عربی، اروپا یا مناطق اشغالی - جایگاه انسانی خود را بدست آورند. پرداختن به ن [...]


    2. A beautiful meditation on displacement, loss and the Palestinian experience. Said's use of Jean Mohr's photographs is inspired and his literary and cultural references (not limited to the Middle East) throughout forge many links to other experiences and ideas. Highly recommended.


    3. کتاب جستارهایی است در مورد فلسطینی بودن با تمام زیر و بم‌های زندگی و تاثیر تبعید و حرمان بر زندگی انسان‌ها. سعید در مقدمه می‌نویسد «فلسطینی‌ها به رغم تمامی آنچه درباره‌ی آنها نوشته شده‌است، ناشناخته مانده‌اند.» و تلاش او در این کتاب نوشتن از جزئیات حیات انسانی فلسطینی‌ه [...]


    4. One of my former students, Ajit Chittambalam, sent me this book during the past year after he heard that I had visited Israel and the occupied West Bank. The book was a tough read for me because the author's style of writing was disjointed, and he seemed to ramble at times. That said, in terms of content, the sentiments he expressed (especially the notion that Palestinians are a nation without a land) were profound. The pictures by Jean Mohr were compelling, and the history lessons and sociology [...]


    5. دکتر ادوارد سعید در فلسطین متولد شد اما در دوازده سالگی فلسطین را برای همیشه ترک کرد.چند سالی در خورمیانه بود و بعد برای ادامه تحصیل به ایالات متحده رفت.او یکی از معدود انسان هایی است که هیچ چیز جز تعهد را به رسمیت نمی شناسد."فراتر از واپسین آسمان"که راجع به فلسطین است هم تحلیلی [...]


    6. opened by a poem from Mahmoud Darwish, this book is absolutely serious literature for every one who still believe that Palestinians are still exist. Where could we go after the last frontiers?Where could the birds fly after the last sky?After the last sky, there is no land said Edward. From his sentence, I also understand the lyrics from Serj Tankian; "even though we can`t afford the sky is over".
