Note Includes bibliographical references and index
This book builds on Suleiman's earlier research on the link among the Arabic language, identity and conflict, which he explored at some length in 'The Arabic Language and National Identity' and 'A War of Words'. The present study builds on his interest in the symbolic realms of signification, and Suleiman approaches the Arabic language as a marker of identity and as a factor in sociopolitical conflict in society
