A visão impactante de uma criança sobre os conflitos culturais dos nossos tempos Chega às livrarias o terceiro volume da premiada série O árabe do futuro, que narra a infância nada comum do quadrinista Riad Sattouf, passada entre a Líbia, a Bretanha e a Síria. No mais novo capítulo da história do adorável menino de cabeleira loura e cacheada e de sua família itinerante, vemos um Riad no alto de seus sete anos, tentando a seu modo se adequar aos costumes e às dinâmicas do vilarejo em que mora na Síria e se entrosar com seus primos e amigos da escola. Entre armas de brinquedo, jejuns, professores com ares de James Dean, brigas familiares e um amor incondicional por Conan, o Bárbaro, o pequeno Riad testemunha, mais do que o ambiente político explosivo da Síria de Hafez Al-Assad, a crise que se abate sobre a família. A mãe está farta das restrições e das condições precárias de vida, enquanto o pai se vê cada vez mais dividido entre suas aspirações profissionais, as reinvindicações da esposa e o peso da tradição. Um dos graphic novels mais importantes da atualidade, comparado aos aclamados Maus e Persépolis, O árabe do futuro é um análise sensível, divertida e por vezes pungente sobre infância, globalização, política e o embate entre o Ocidente e o mundo árabe. Com traços simples e cores fortes, Riad Sattouf oferece um relato lúdico e singelo da vida em meio a realidades tão diferentes.

Segundo volume da premiada trilogia "O árabe do futuro", que narra a infância nada comum do quadrinista Riad Sattouf no Oriente Médio. No primeiro volume (1978-1984), o pequeno Riad, filho de pai sírio e mãe bretã, passou os primeiros anos de sua vida dividido entre a Líbia, a Bretanha e a Síria. Nesta sequência, ele narra os choques de seu primeiro ano como aluno de uma escola síria, onde enfim aprende a ler e escrever em árabe enquanto enfrenta um ambiente rígido e violento. Ele também conhece mais a fundo a família paterna e, apesar dos cabelos louros e das semanas de férias na França com a mãe, faz todo o possível para se tornar um verdadeiro sírio e encher o pai de orgulho. A vida no campo, a escola no pequeno vilarejo de Ter Maaleh, as incursões ao mercado negro na cidade grande, os jantares luxuosos com o parente que era general e as caminhadas nas ruínas áridas da antiga cidade de Palmira, conforme retratados no livro, são um impactante mergulho na realidade da então ditadura de Hafez Al-Assad na Síria. Muitas vezes comparado aos aclamados Maus e Persépolis, O árabe do futuro exibe uma visão reveladora sobre o conflito entre culturas que está definindo o século XXI. Com traço simples e narrativa fluida e divertida, Riad fornece ao mesmo tempo uma análise do embate entre o Ocidente e o mundo árabe e um autorretrato de uma infância tão plural e de cores tão fortes.

In the third installment of the acclaimed series, the Sattouf family begins to implode under the pressure of Hafez al-Assad's regime and the suffocation of their rural Syrian village. The Arab of the Future is the widely acclaimed, internationally bestselling graphic memoir that tells the story of Riad Sattouf’s peripatetic childhood in the Middle East. In the first volume, which covers the years 1978–1984, his family moves between rural France, Libya, and Syria, where they eventually settle in his father’s native village of Ter Maaleh, near Homs. The second volume recounts young Riad’s first year attending school in Syria (1984–1985), where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of Hafez al-Assad. In this third volume, (1985–1987), Riad’s mother, fed up with the grinding reality of daily life in the village, decides she cannot take it any longer. When she resolves to move back to France, young Riad sees his father torn between his wife’s aspirations and the weight of family traditions.

The Arab of the Future, the #1 French best-seller, tells the unforgettable story of Riad Sattouf's childhood, spent in the shadows of 3 dictators--Muammar Gaddafi, Hafez al-Assad, and his father In striking, virtuoso graphic style that captures both the immediacy of childhood and the fervor of political idealism, Riad Sattouf recounts his nomadic childhood growing up in rural France, Gaddafi's Libya, and Assad's Syria--but always under the roof of his father, a Syrian Pan-Arabist who drags his family along in his pursuit of grandiose dreams for the Arab nation. Riad, delicate and wide-eyed, follows in the trail of his mismatched parents; his mother, a bookish French student, is as modest as his father is flamboyant. Venturing first to the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab State and then joining the family tribe in Homs, Syria, they hold fast to the vision of the paradise that always lies just around the corner. And hold they do, though food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and with locks banned, the Sattoufs come home one day to discover another family occupying their apartment. The ultimate outsider, Riad, with his flowing blond hair, is called the ultimate insult... Jewish. And in no time at all, his father has come up with yet another grand plan, moving from building a new people to building his own great palace. Brimming with life and dark humor, The Arab of the Future reveals the truth and texture of one eccentric family in an absurd Middle East, and also introduces a master cartoonist in a work destined to stand alongside Maus and Persepolis.

The highly anticipated continuation of Riad Sattouf’s internationally acclaimed, #1 French bestseller, which was hailed by The New York Times as “a disquieting yet essential read” In The Arab of the Future: Volume 1, cartoonist Riad Sattouf tells of the first years of his childhood as his family shuttles back and forth between France and the Middle East. In Libya and Syria, young Riad is exposed to the dismal reality of a life where food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and his cousins, virulently anti-Semitic and convinced he is Jewish because of his blond hair, lurk around every corner waiting to beat him up. In Volume 2, Riad, now settled in his father’s hometown of Homs, gets to go to school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad’s story takes in the sweep of politics, religion, and poverty, but is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteacher, the lure of the black market, with its menu of shame and subsistence, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. As his family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to make the most dramatic of changes. Darkly funny and piercingly direct, The Arab of the Future, Volume 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad Sattouf’s dazzlingly original talent.

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami was a key figure in the Camp David negotiations and many other rounds of peace talks, public and secret, with Palestinian and Arab officials. Here he offers an unflinching account of the Arab-Israeli conflict, informed by his firsthand knowledge of the major characters and events. Clear-eyed and unsparing, Ben-Ami traces the twists and turns of the Middle East conflict and gives us behind-the-scenes accounts of the meetings in Oslo, Madrid, and Camp David. The author paints particularly trenchant portraits of key figures from Ben-Gurion to Bill Clinton. He is highly critical of both Ariel Sharon and the late Yasser Arafat, seeing Arafat's rejection of Clinton's peace plan as a crime against the Palestinian people. The author is also critical of President Bush's Middle East policy, which he calls "a presumptuous grand strategy." Along the way, Ben-Ami highlights the many blunders on both sides, describing for instance how the great victory of the Six Day War launched many Israelis on a misbegotten "messianic" dream of controlling all the Biblical Jewish lands, which only served to make the Palestinian problem much worse. In contrast, it has only been when Israel has suffered setbacks that it has made moves towards peace. The best hope for the region, he concludes, is to create an international mandate in the Palestinian territories that would lead to the implementation of Clinton's two-state peace parameters. Scars of War, Wounds of Peace is a major work of history--with by far the most fair and balanced critique of Israel ever to come from one of its key officials. This paperback edition features a new Epilogue by the author featuring an analysis of the most recent events in the Israeli-Arab situation, from the disappearance of Ariel Sharon from public life to the emergence of Hamas and Israel's recent war against Hizballah. It is an absolute must-read for everyone who wants to understand the dynamics of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
