beautiful inspiring books!

It is book season! [Actually, it is always book season.]

There is a marvelous book due out in December. A book designed for teachers and educators in the United States but can also definitely be used by teachers elsewhere — including in English-language schools in the United States. A book that – as a teacher myself I can attest to this – truly provides for teachers both the reasoning and the means to empower their pedagogy in support of liberation and equality. Check it out: The Politics of Teaching Palestine to Americans: Addressing Pedagogical Strategies by Marcy Newman

Talking about Palestine, here is another excellent book, and you can get this book now – no need to wait until December: Hidden Histories: Palestine And The Eastern Mediterranean by Bassem Ra’ad

And, cannot be forgotten, Rami Zurayk has another excellent book out – Food, Farming, and Freedom: Sowing the Arab Spring. also available now!

I’ve also just received more than a dozen books. Of those, here are a few that you may be interested in:
African Women Writing Resistance: An Anthology of Contemporary Voices (Women in Africa and the Diaspora)

Dust from our eyes: An unblinkered look at Africa

Environmental Injustices, Political Struggles: Race, Class and the Environment
The Environmental Justice Reader: Politics, Poetics, and Pedagogy
– Plus, this book – Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain – , by the author of one of my all-time favorite books: Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives

My apologies, by the way, for providing an Amazon link to the books. I should instead provide links to independent publishers.


  1. Thanks habibti! I didn’t know you read Basem’s book too! I’d love to know what you think of it!
