From the Editors
Since we first launched our New Texts Out Now (NEWTON) page a little more than a year ago, we have had the opportunity to feature an astonishing range of books and articles for Jadaliyya readers. With authors generously agreeing to discuss their new works, offer background information on their research, and allow us to post excerpts from their books and articles, we have been able to offer first looks at some of the most important new work in the field, from established names and rising stars alike.
This seemed like an opportune moment to look back at the previous year and offer a review of some of the most significant work that has been featured in NEWTON. This is work that spans disciplines, regions, and methodological and theoretical approaches. We offer it for scholars working in the field, as well as teachers and students looking for recently published sources in Middle East Studies.
As always, if you wish to recommend a book to be featured in New Texts Out Now, or if you have just published a book or a peer-reviewed article, please email us at email@example.com.
