What we are Reading
The complex events of the world can't be reduced to neat and tidy sound bites.
That’s why at the Majlis, we are always reading books that are out of the mainstream. In our opinion, these books are essential reading for anyone wanting to further thier knowledge of the Arab world.
Here’s what we are reading:
Striving in the Path of God: Jihad and Martyrdom in Islamic Thought: by Asma Afsaruddin
Faisal I of Iraq: by Ali A. Allawi
Being Arab: by Samir Kassir
1913 – The Year before the Storm by Shaun Whiteside
Baghdad, Yesterday: The Making of an Arab Jew by Sasson Somekh
