In the wake of the Ottoman Empire’s nineteenth-century reforms, as guilds waned and new professions emerged, the scholarly ‘estate’ underwent social differentiation. Some found employment in the state’s new institutions as translators, teachers and editors, whilst others resisted civil servant status. Gradually, the scholar morphed into the public writer. Despite his fledgling status, he catered for the public interest all the more so since new professionals such as doctors, engineers and lawyers endorsed this latest social role as an integral part of their own self-image. This dual preoccupation with self-definition and all things public is the central concern of this book. Focusing on the period after the tax-farming scholar took the bow and before the alienated intellectual prevailed on the contemporary Arab cultural scene, it situates the making of the Arab intellectual within the dysfunctional space of competing states’ interests known as the ‘Nahda’. Located between Empire and Colony, the emerging Arab public sphere was a space of over- and under-regulation, hindering accountability and upsetting allegiances. The communities that Arab intellectuals imagined, including the Pan-Islamic, Pan-Arab and socialist sat astride many a polity and never became contained by post-colonial states. Examining a range of canonical and less canonical authors, this interdisciplinary approach to The Making of the Modern Arab Intellectual will be of interest to students and scholars of the Middle East, history, political science, comparative literature and philosophy.

Seit Dezember 2010 haben die Arabellions Nordafrika und die gesamte Region des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens erfasst. Als stabil geltende autoritäre Machtstrukturen wurden massiv erschüttert, wenn auch nicht überall auf gleiche Weise. Ziel des Bandes ist es, Ursachen und Verlaufsformen der Proteste im spezifischen Kontext der jeweiligen Länder sowie regional übergreifender politischer und sozio-ökonomischer Faktoren zu analysieren. Dabei wird sowohl den Gemeinsamkeiten nachgespürt, die die wellenartige Ausbreitung der Arabellions erklären, als auch den länderspezifischen Besonderheiten, die die Vielgestaltigkeit von Protest und Revolte verstehbar machen. Es wird aufgezeigt, warum man nicht überall von Revolution sprechen kann, welche Formen autoritärer Resilienz vorherrschen und wo es Chancen auf eine friedliche Transformation gibt. Darüber hinaus wird verdeutlicht, dass die politischen, gesellschaftlichen und ökonomischen Konsequenzen der Arabellions weit über die Region hinausstrahlen.

Rosalind Bengal is a radio journalist and producer for true-crime TV. After years in London, she still wakes with the cinnamon taste of cassia leaves in her mouth, a dream from her childhood in India when her father taught her about meteorology and her mother about alchemy. Then a letter comes from her sister, now married to a famous Bombay film director: "People tell me he murdered his first wife". Despite her fear of being drawn back into the murky patterns of her family past, Roz returns to India. In Bombay, where the monsoon season is imminent, the two sisters' lives are threatened by the repercussions from a brutal murder of a transvestite with links to "Bollywood". Roz soon realizes that her best defense weapon is not a gun but her knowledge of chemistry and Shakespeare, of storm warnings and gene patterns.
