  “If you really want to know people, start by looking in their bedrooms,†says Shereen El Feki, author of the new book Sex and the Citadel: Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World (Pantheon). “If there’s one thing Arab women dislike, it’s being viewed as victims. To know why, read this book. It’s full of fascinating stories of women who overcame obstacles—familial, marital, financial, social, and cultural—to make it in the male-dominated world of Arab business.

Tracing five centuries of Arab history, Rogan reveals that there was an age when the Arabs set the rules for the rest of the world. Today, however, the Arab world's sense of subjection to external powers carries vast consequences for both the region and Westerners who attempt to control it. Human Rights in the Arab World takes a substantial step in the opposite direction. Its principal contribution is to undermine the prevailing view that human rights are largely irrelevant in a region deemed sui generis. As such, the book should appeal to a broad audience, including human rights students and regional specialists alike."—.

The dominance of Antisemitism in the Arab World has shown historical trends of rampant Anti-Jewish violence, hate speech, conspiracy theories, and general disdain of one peoples towards another. One such conspiracy theory, the Damascus affair became a catalyst for propagating the Blood Libel throughout the Arab world and popular literature.   The heart of the Arab world is made up of the six founding members of the Arab League: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and six forked the Arab league in Other Arab nations in the Middle joined the League as they won their independence or were voluntarily drafted into the non-binding alliance.
