The Making of the Arab Intellectual Empire, Public Sphere and the Colonial Coordinates of Selfhood

History of Arab intellectuals has received a renewed academic attention after the Arab world demonstrated its ability to go through the democratization process without it being imposed from outside. The Arab public sphere is still not a theme much researched in Middle Eastern scholarship. This volume is an effort to re-read history of Arab intellectuals within the theory of the public sphere. Dyala Hamza and contributors have tried to look beyond Albert Hourani’s thesis and have produced this insightful analytical account of Arab intellectuals during the Ottoman and colonial period.
