Russia's Geostrategic Outlook and the Syrian Crisis (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Tohme, Hicham, Ph.D., Sheffield University

Credentials: 

Instructor in History and Media Studies, American University of Beirut

In this groundbreaking study, international relations scholar Hicham Tohme offers a critique of current academic, scholarly, and public understandings of Russia’s geostrategic outlook through the lens of the ongoing Syrian crisis. This critique is based on a reassessment of four key concepts that shape our knowledge of Russia’s foreign policy. First, the Westphalian state system is an inadequate a point of reference when applied to a country that still perceives itself and behaves as an empire.

The Algerian Destiny of Albert Camus: 1940 – 1962

Author: 

Maougal, Mohamed and Kassoul, Aicha; Translation: Professor Philip Beitchman, NYU

Credentials: 

Authors are senior professors of French Literature, University of Algiers

This monograph (translated from French) is the first attempt to reconcile Camus’s deep-seated identity as an Algerian and his ideas of a multiconfessional, multicultural, non-colonial Algeria. The authors discuss the identity of Camus, his philosophy and politics, including his sexual politics, in light of a southern Mediterranean cultural nexus that stamped Camus as an Algerian rather than French (pied-noir). Camus’s cosmopolitan and radical Algiers of the 30’s is described vibrantly reflecting his extraordinary understanding of the people and landscape that evolved from his journalism.

Author: 

Badry, Fatima

Credentials: 

Ph.D; UC Berkeley; Chair, D/English and Linguistics, American University of Sharjah (UAE)

This monograph is an important contribution to the study of lexical acquisition and the larger question of developing a standard Arabic as a second language through literacy. Since large numbers of individuals learn Arabic for religious as well as economic reasons in Africa , Central Asia and East Asia this topic has implications far beyond its focused discussion of semantic and formal properties in the process of analyzing Arabic words into patterns and underlying roots.
