Pressestimmen"Unprecedented in its monumental range and scale this book is a valuable and welcome addition to the growing body of scholarly works in English that deal with modern Arabic literature...A keen awareness of the intimate relation between modern Arabic literature and the other discursive practices and discourses that shape modern Arab identity permeates the chapters of the book...This is a major source of valuable information and critical acumen that will stand in good stead every student of modern Arabic literature, including, or perhaps especially, those genuinely interested in literary theory." Journal of Arabic Literature "Badawi's work certainly fills a gap in the field and should be a useful tool for students of Arabic literature and a valuable reference for all interested scholars." Journal of the American Oriental Society
