Classical Arabic stories an anthology by Salma Khadra Jayyusi ( )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Short fiction was an immensely innovative art in the medieval Arab world, providing the perfect vehicle for transmitting dazzling images of life and experiences as early as pre-Islamic times. These works also speak to the urbanization of the Arab domain after Islam, mirroring the bustling life of the Muslim Arabs and Islamized Persians and reflecting the sure stamp of an urbanity that had settled very staunchly after big conquests. All the noises and voices of the Umayyads and Abbasids are here. One can taste the flavor of Abbasid food, witness the rise of slave girls and singers, and experience the pride of state. Reading these texts today illuminates the wide spectrum of early Arab life and suggests the influences and innovations that flourished so vibrantly in medieval Arab society... -- Product Description

The secret life of Saeed : the Pessoptimist by Imīl Ḥabībī ( Book )
16 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This contemporary classic, the story of a Palestinian who becomes a citizen of Israel, combines fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy. Saeed is the comic hero, the luckless fool, whose tale tells of aggression and resistance, terror and heroism, reason and loyalty that typify the hardships and struggles of Arabs in Israel. An informer for the Zionist state, his stupidity, candor, and cowardice make him more of a victim than a villain; but in a series of tragicomic episodes, he is gradually transformed from a disaster-haunted, gullible collaborator into a Palestinian-no hero still, but a simple man intent on survival and, perhaps, happiness." -- Book cover

Human rights in Arab thought : a reader by Salma Khadra Jayyusi ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While the notion of 'human rights' is sometimes thought to be a product of the Western Enlightenment, human rights as a subject for philosophical enquiry and as the basis for government in fact have a long and rich heritage within Arab thought. In this book, Salma K. Jayyusi brings together a list of distinguished scholars to reflect the range and depth of Arab thinking on this subject. Translated from the best-selling Arabic edition, this work offers English readers a fresh and original insight into the rich, well-established and, nonetheless, contentious literature of human rights. Leading Arab intellectuals such as Muhammad 'Abid al-Jabiri and Muhammad Arkoun have made contributions on topics ranging from the concept of the individual in early Islamic texts to labour laws in the contemporary Middle East. They write from a number of perspectives: Islamic, secular, generalist, regionalist, historical and political, bringing together ideas which will challenge and enlighten anyone interested in human rights and the modern Arab world. From the Medina Charter to the citizenship struggles of Palestinian refugees, Salma K. Jayyusi's book offers the first comprehensive guide to this important and often overlooked aspect of Arab political and intellectual culture"--BOOK JACKET

Tales of Juha : classic Arab folk humor ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Juha is an old Arab comic literary figure around whom countless popular anecdotes were written. He appears variously as preacher and beggar, porter and petty merchant, thief and honest man, judge and social critic, wise man and fool, jester and charlatan (though never as wealthy man or oppressor). While the subject matter is Arab or otherwise Islamic, the humor transcends national and cultural boundaries to achieve a universality that is instantly recognizable and accessible today."--BOOK JACKET
My Jerusalem : essays, reminiscences, and poems ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A passionate and eclectic collection of essays, poems, and scholarship that brings to life Jerusalem, in its embattled, contemporary guise as well as in its ancient history. The book begins in the immediacy of today's Jerusalem - with its dispossession and laws, its bloody conflicts and massive skyscrapers - and moves backward in time to Classical Jerusalem, working to disentangle the knots of the three great monotheistic religions, and finally comes to rest in a section that is a testament to the physical facts of Jerusalem: its monuments and alleys, its smells, its music, its people."--Jacket
