From the Editors
New Texts Out Now (NEWTON) is gearing up for 2012, featuring an array of new and forthcoming texts that are sure to be of interest to Jadaliyya readers. This week, we are delighted to feature two important books: Joseph Sassoon’s Saddam Hussein’s Ba‘th Party: Inside an Authoritarian Regime, which was just published by Cambridge University Press, and the new edition of Ella Shohat’s Israeli Cinema: East/West and the Politics of Representation, with a new postscript by the author, recently published by I. B. Tauris.
Next week, to mark the first anniversary of the 25 January Revolution, we will feature Messages from Tahrir, a collection of images from the Egyptian Revolution edited by Karima Khalil and published by the American University of Cairo press. And for those looking for historical background to modern political events in Egypt, we will also feature Ziad Fahmy’s Ordinary Egyptians: Creating the Modern Nation through Popular Culture, recently published by Stanford University Press.
Upcoming editions of NEWTON will feature Ben White’s critically-praised Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination, and Democracy; Magid Shihade's Not Just a Soccer Game: Colonialism and Conflict Among Palestinians in Israel; the important collection Held in Trust: Waqf in the Islamic World, edited by Pascale Ghazaleh; and Joshua Stacher’s much-anticipated Adaptable Autocrats: Regime Power in Egypt and Syria, which will be published this spring by Stanford University Press.
New Texts Out Now is published weekly. If you are the author of a recently published or forthcoming work, or if you have a suggestion for a NEWTON post, please contact either of the co-editors, Anthony Alessandrini or Bassam Haddad, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org For a full list of texts published by NEWTON, check out the full page here.

"What is emerging in Egypt (and elsewhere) is a religious secularism and a secularist religionism that will probably produce new styles of movements and organizations that may keep old labels but will be significantly different from their twentieth-century ancestors."click | email | tweet
