Description:
Berkeley: University of California Press, February 1993. Hardcover. First Edition / full number line. Good+ book in a Fine jacket. Occasional ink emphasis marks from a prior owner. Spine square and tight. Jacket clean and crisp. Foxing to edges. 362 pagers. This wide-ranging examination of Arab society and culture offers a unique opportunity to know the Arab world from an Arab point of view. Halim Barakat, an expatriate Syrian who is both a scholar and a novelist, emphasizes the dynamic changes and diverse patterns that have characterized the Middle East since the mid-19th century. His is a picture that differs dramatically from the static one portrayed by much of Western scholarship. Barakat maintains that the unequal power relationships between Western imperial forces and Arabs have strongly influenced Western writing, thereby limiting our understanding of what it means to be Arab. The Arab world is not one shaped by Islam, or one simply explained by reference to the sectarian conflicts of a… Read More

After its conquest by the Arabs in A.D. 640, Egypt became an impenetrable territory for western travelers and during the Middle Ages and Renaissance the civilization of the pharaohs was shrouded in a veil of mystery and magic that only began to be lifted at the beginning of the eighteenth century, when the first explorers started to travel through the country and describe its monuments. However, it was not until the end of the eighteenth century, when Napoleon Bonaparte landed in Egypt at the head of his expeditionary force, that this civilization buried in the sand and lost in the mists of time attracted the attention of… Read More

A French entomologist, attending a symposium in Cairo, finds a cruious kind of bean being on a market stall. It is claimed the beans, derived from the scarab beetle, have magic powers; specifically the power to guarantee the brith of a male infant - and when the entomologist does some research in to the matter, discovering the incidence of female birth has become increasingly rare, he is left in no doubt that the world has entered into a critical phase of its history. As his beloved daughter Beatrice approaches maturity, the entomologist and his partner question the validity of gender bias, and attempt to redress the growing imbalance before it reaches… Read More

Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean and bright, dogear to rear cover. Not from a library. No remainder mark. xiii + 199 pages.
Simona Sharoni's innovative approach to the conflict in the Middle East stresses the relationship between gender and politics by illuminating the daily experiences of women in Israel and in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Among the issues explored are the connections between the violence of the conflict and the escalation of violence against women; the link between militarism and sexism; and the role of nationalism in building individual and collective identities. Sharoni also shows the impact of Intifada (the Palestinian uprising in December, 1987) on the Palestinian and Israeli women's movements. While women's coalitions such as these are critical subjects in and of themselves, the… Read More

Seems unread. xxii + 658 pages. This book redefines the founding era of the United States. As the 1790s began, America was struggling to survive at home and abroad, and the world was gripped by an arc of revolutionary fervor stretching from Philadelphia and Paris to St. Petersburg and Cairo. While a fragile United States teetered on the brink of oblivion, Russia towered as a vast imperial power, the Islamic peoples were gearing for war, and France plunged into monumental revolution. Winik illuminates how their fates combined in one extraordinary moment to change the course of civilization and bequeath us the world--we've inherited.

Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 406 pages. An epic novel that chronicles the dramatic history of the al-Nagi family: a family that moves, over many generations, from the height of power and glory to the depths of decadence and decay. The Harafish begins with the tale of Ashur al-Nagi, a man who grows from humble beginnings to become a great leader, a legend among his people. Generation after generation, however, Ashur's descendants grow further from his legendary example. They lose touch with their origins as they amass and then squander large fortunes, marry prostitutes when they marry at all, and develop rivalries that end in death. The community's upper class keeps a watchful eye on the descendants of al-Nagi for fear of losing their privileges, but they find no threat of another such as Ashur. Not,… Read More
