Summary

The Arab Diaspora examines the range of roles the Arab world has played to various audiences on the modern and postmodern stage and the issues which have arisen as a result. The variety of roles explored reflects the diversity of Arab culture. With particular focus placed on political, diplomatic and cultural issues, the book explores the relationship between the Arab world and the West, covering topics including:

  • Islam and its common ancestry and relationship with Christianity
  • the varying forms of Arab civilization and its inability in more modern times to fulfil the dreams of nineteenth and twentieth century reformers
  • continued stereotyping of the Arab world within the media.

The Arab Diaspora is essential reading for those with interests in Arabic and Middle East studies, and cultural studies.
