With unique construction and text in English and Arabic, the book seeks common ground while provoking questions about compromises made between humanity and fear in the post-9/11, "War on Terror" era. Essays by Moazzam Begg, Fred Ritchin, and Debi Cornwall. Design by David Chickey. For review copies or EU/UK shipping, contact email@example.com.
