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.
