Product Details


“This is an unusual book of such fluent and searing honesty that I almost wanted Samir Kassir to be kinder to himself. I salute his memory.”—John Pilger

“One of Lebanon’s most prominent journalists and one of the most vociferous and bravest critics of the Syrian regime.”—Robert Fisk

“Shortly before his death, Kassir published a remarkable essay exploring what he termed the ‘Arab malaise’ of the twenty-first century. It reflected the disenchantment of Arab citizens with their corrupt and authoritarian governments.”—Eugene Rogan, author of The Arabs: A History

“Part historical essay and part political pamphlet … This is a genuine cry against the forces of Islamic extremism.”—New Statesman
