Resumen

Edited by Samir Khalaf and Roseanne Saad Khalaf. "Arab Society and Culture" is an essential reference for Middle Eastern Studies students and anyone interested in Middle Eastern literature and culture. It provides supplementary readings and wide-ranging essays that examine various dimensions of social and cultural change in Arab societies, paying particular attention to how local cultures adapt to global and post-modern transformations. The selections are informed by an effort to reconcile the largely analytical and empirical explorations of the social sciences with the more intuitive sensibilities of the literary imagination. Biography: Samir Khalaf is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center for Behavioral Research, American University of Beirut (AUB). His publications include Sexuality in the Arab World and Cultural Resistance (both Saqi). Roseanne Saad Khalaf is Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing at AUB. Her publications include Transit Beirut (Saqi) and Hikayat: Short Stories by Lebanese Women (Telegram).
