Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I am looking forward to reading Gregory Johnsen’s book, The Last Refuge: Yemen, Al-Qaeda, and America’s War in Arabia over the break.

My research associate, Alexander Brock, will be reading Language, Memory, and Identity in the Middle East: The Case for Lebanon by Franck Salameh.
