              Are You This? Or Are You This?: A Story of Identity and Worth
               

              Are You This? Or Are You This?: A Story of Identity and Worth (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Al Jazerah, Madian; With Georgiou, Ellen

              When Madian Al Jazerah came out to his Arab parents, his mother had one question. 'Are you this?' she asked, cupping her hand. 'Or are you this?' she motioned with a poking finger. If you're the poker, she said, you aren't a homosexual. For Madian, this opposition tells us less a...bout who he is than it does about patriarchy and power, and society's efforts to fit our identity into neat boxes. This kind of question has followed Madian all his life. He is Palestinian, but wasn't raised in Palestine. He was born in Kuwait, but he's not Kuwaiti. He's British-educated, but not a Westerner. He's a Muslim, but he can't embrace the Islam of today. He's a gay man, out of the closet but still living in the shade. As an adult Madian settled in Jordan, but he has left the country three times in fear of his life. He has moved around the world searching for acceptance and belonging, joining new communities in San Francisco and New York, yet always finding himself pulled back to Amman. This frank and moving memoir narrates his battles with adversity, racism and homophobia, and a rich life lived with humour, dignity and grace.

              City of Illusions: A History of Granada (Hardback)

              Granada is a deceptive city, concealing a layered past and a complex character. The last Muslim capital in Western Europe, over the centuries it has captured the hearts and imagination of its inhabitants, and featured in countless myths and legends. Yet historical evidence reveal...s real tales from Granada that are even more fascinating: a romantic epic of secrets and follies, victory and failure, poetry and art. City of Illusions brings together Granada's many stories--the archaeological forger, the renegade French general, the garrotted liberal heroine, and the Jewish poet and right hand of two Muslim rulers. From the founding dynasty to the building of the Alhambra, to the Reconquista, French occupation and Spanish Civil War, this is the history of Granada from its eleventh-century origins to the present day. Granada's historical narrative has long been fought over, recreated, idealised or buried. Elegant and deeply researched, this book sets the record straight, delving into the true story of a beautiful city, with all its quirks, mysteries, intrigues and triumphs.

              Informal Politics in the Middle East
               

              Informal Politics in the Middle East (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The culture of politics within any system of governance is influenced by how state and society interact, and how these relationships are mediated by existing political institutions, whether formal or informal. The chapters in this volume highlight two broad types of informal poli...tical engagement in the Middle East: civil action that works in tandem with the state apparatus, and civil action that poses a challenge to the state. In both cases, these activities can and do achieve tangible results for particular groups of people, as well as for the state. For many, informal politics and civil mobilisation are not a choice, but a necessity to secure--collectively--some kind of social security, through communal reciprocity and everyday activism. Ironically, Middle Eastern authorities often turn a blind eye to informal organising, because 'self-help' schemes allow certain social groups to survive--reducing their instinct to make demands of, or seek support from, the state. People are discouraged from political action and dissent; yet they are simultaneously encouraged to seek their own betterment, often leading to politicised groups and associations. By analysing these formations, the contributors shed light on informal politics in the region.
