Intellectual Life in the Arab East, 1890–1939

​Some aspects of the intellectual and social history of the Arab East between 1890 and 1939 are considered in these seminar proceedings. A review in the International Journal of Middle East Studies commented that this is an “indispensable work for scholars interested in the crosscurrents of intellectual, political, and social thought." There is an emphasis on dimensions not previously explored, such as nationalism, relations with the West, political and social reform, and the role of literature. Thirteen papers examine various aspects of the political aspirations and ideals of the times in Cairo, Beirut, Jebel Lubnan, and Jebel ʿAmel, Damascus, Baghdad, and Sanʿa.
