Summary:

Arab women's writing in the modern age began with 'A'isha al-Taymuriya, Warda al-Yaziji, Zaynab Fawwaz, and other nineteenth-century pioneers in Egypt and the Levant. This unique study-first published in Arabic in 2004-looks at the work of those pioneers and then traces the development of Arab women's literature through the end of the twentieth century, and also includes a meticulously researched, comprehensive bibliography of writing by Arab women. In the first section, in nine essays that cover the Arab Middle East from Morocco to Iraq and Syria to Yemen, critics and writers from the Arab world examine the origin and evolution of women's writing in each country in the region, addressing fiction, poetry, drama, and autobiographical writing. The second part of the volume contains bibliographical entries for over 1,200 Arab women writers from the last third of the nineteenth century through 1999. Each entry contains a short biography and a bibliography of each author's published works. This section also includes Arab women's writing in French and English, as well as a bibliography of works translated into English. With its broad scope and extensive research, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in Arabic literature, women's studies, or comparative literature.

Summary:

In 1872, Ismail Pasha, the khedive of Egypt, was the first to adopt the European custom of positioning heroic statues on public display as a symbolic message of the continuing authority of the ruling Muhammad Ali dynasty to which he belonged, but it was not until the early twentieth century and the determination of sculptor Mahmoud Mukhtar that such public art gained general acceptance, and today statues stand, ride, or sit in the streets, squares, and gardens of Cairo. Each sculpture adds a piece to the jigsaw of history spanning personalities and events that shaped the city and wider Egypt from 1805 to 1970, and here Cairo-based author Lesley Lababidi provides a unique perspective on Egyptian history through looking at more than thirty statues and monumental sculptures and the stories behind them. Between statues, she explores Cairo's growth and its multidimensional identity, as manifested in the development and changing use of city space over the centuries, and examines the relationship of Cairo's modern denizens with the landscapes, districts, palaces, archaeological sites, cafés, bridges, and gardens of their great and maddening city, the Mother of the World. Illustrated throughout with color photographs and archival pictures, Cairo's Street Stories presents a unique and lively view of the history that fashioned the city's streets and open spaces, and of the many and often unexpected uses to which its inventive inhabitants put them.

Summary:

Unlike The Literary Atlas of Cairo, which focuses on the literary geopolitics of the cityscape, this companion volume immerses the reader in the complex network of socioeconomic and cultural lives in the city. The seven chapters first introduce the reader to representations of some of Cairo's prominent profiles, both political and cultural, and their impact on the city's literary geography, before presenting a spectrum of readings of the city by its multiethnic, multinational, and multilingual writers across class, gender, and generation. Daunting images of colonial school experiences and startling contrasts of postcolonial educational realities are revealed, while Cairo's moments of political participation and oppression are illustrated, as well as the space accorded to women within the city across history and class. The city's marginals are placed on its literary map, alongside representations of the relationship between writing and drugs, and the places, paraphernalia, and products of the drug world across class and time.

Summary:

Storytelling, as oral tradition and in writing, has long played a central role in Jewish society. Family, educators, and clergy employ stories to transmit Jewish culture, traditions, and values. This comprehensive bibliography identifies 668 Jewish folktales by title and subject, summarizing plot lines for easy access to the right story for any occasion. Some centuries old and others freshly imagined, the tales include animal fables, supernatural yarns, and anecdotes for festivals and holidays. Themes include justice, community, cause and effect, and mitzvahs, or good deeds. This second edition nearly doubles the number of stories and expands the guide’s global reach, with new pieces from Turkey, Morocco, Libya, Tunisia, and Chile. Subject cross-references and a glossary complete the volume, a living tool for understanding the ever-evolving world of Jewish folklore.

Summary:

When you've decided enough is enough and it's time to go live your dreams (because your life fell apart). Ahhh... the beauty of life. Allegra 'Aleya' Pena is an American belly dancer who decided to pack it all up and move to Cairo, Egypt from Los Angeles, CA in 2008, just as the housing market was crashing and burning, and the recession was starting-to pursue her dream of belly dancing in the Middle East. At the age of 39, when most artists would never even think that was possible, she took the plunge and ended up in the mother land of belly dance. These are her stories from Facebook about arriving in Cairo, the madness she encountered living amongst 20+ million people, not speaking the language, her adventures, her trials, and literally getting caught up in the cross fire of a massive revolution that toppled president Hosni Mubarak. She never intended to write a book, but so many of her "friends" kept asking when the book was coming out. This book is dedicated to everyone who asked. These are her "Cairo Stories".

Summary:

A corrupt police officer trawls the streets of Cairo on the most important assignment of his career: the answer to the truth of all existence… A young journalist struggles over the obituary of a nightclub dancer… A man slowly loses his mind in one of the city’s new desert developments.. There is a saying that, whoever you are, if you come to Cairo you will find a hundred people just like you. For over a thousand years, the city on the banks of the Nile has welcomed travellers from around the world. But in recent years Cairo has also been a stage for expressions of short-lived hope, political disappointments and a violent repression that can barely be written about. These ten short stories showcase some of the most exciting, emerging voices in Egypt, guiding us through one of the world’s largest and most historic cities as it is today – from its slums to its villas, its bars and its balconies, through its infamous traffic. Appearing in English for the first time, these stories evoke the sadness and loss of the modern city, as well as its humour and beauty. Translated by Adam Talib, Raphael Cohen, Basma Ghalayini, Thoraya El-Rayyes, Raph Cormack, Andrew Leber, Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp, Elisabeth Jaquette, Kareem James Abu-Zeid & Yasmine Seale.

Summary:

"James Leslie Mitchell's 'Lewis Grassic Gibbon' fiction of Scotland has made him famous, but there is another side to his writing (which he published in his own name) - his passion for writing about the world of history, archaeology and myth." "In this novel, published for the first time since 1932, the characters are all drawn to the deserts of Egypt by the legendary Lost Trumpet, which was believed to have blown down the walls of Jericho. They are entranced by its beauty and its dangers, and the thrill of finding some relic of a past which could still blow through the political struggles of the 1930s and bring some clarity to a world they find puzzling and sometimes repellent." "The Lost Trumpet is an amazing evocation of Egypt, heavily characteristic of Gibbon's early stories, steeped in the memory of his days in the armed forces served in the East, on the Nile, exploring the sounds and sights and smells of Egypt. It reminds us that Grassic Gibbon was a major author with a wide range of talent, which re-publication is making available after many years of neglect."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
