Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the years before his assassination in 2005, Samir Kassir became one of Lebanon's foremost public intellectuals, a fearless critic of tyranny and an inspiring advocate of democracy. In Being Arab, his last book, he calls on the peoples of the Middle East to reject both Western double standards and Islamism in order to take the future of the region into their own hands. With the Arab Spring, millions have now answered that call.

Synopsis:

A passionate meditation on contemporary Arab identity.

Passionately written and brilliantly argued, this rallying cry for change has now been heard by millions.
