AuthorAmin Maalouf
PublisherBloomsbury Publishing PLC
Publication Date30 August 2012
Book DescriptionIn this brilliant exploration of the post-9/11 world, leading Lebanese novelist and intellectual Amin Maalouf sets out to understand the urgent challenges the world faces today. Instead of seeing the current disorder of the post-9/11 world as a 'clash of civilisations' Maalouf sees it as the 'exhaustion of two civilisations', a period in which humanity has reached its threshold of 'moral incompetence'. Disordered World is a plea by one of the major writers of our time for intelligence, tolerance and a sense of urgency in order that we develop a mature vision of our patrimony, our beliefs, our differences and the future of the planet which is our common home.
Editorial ReviewShould be prescribed reading in the Foreign Office and on the foreign desk of newspapers and the BBC -- Allan Massie * Spectator, Books of the Year * Stimulating and provocative * Max Hastings, Sunday Times * [Maalouf] is perfectly placed and wonderfully qualified to shed light on the pervasive sense that there is a cataclysmic battle in progress between civilisations and systems of belief. Disordered World is full of insight -- Justin Cartwright * Observer * Fascinating ... no review can do justice to its limpid prose * Financial Times *
About the AuthorAmin Maalouf was born in Lebanon in 1949. A journalist and director of the daily newspaper An-Nahar, he lived in Beirut until the start of the civil war in 1975, when he left for Paris with his family. His life straddles East and West - he reads and writes in Arabic, but chooses to publish in French. He refuses to be limited to one identity, either Arab or French, but chooses actively to be both simultaneously. A novelist, essayist and memoirist, he has won prestigious prizes, including the Prix Goncourt for his novels and other books which have been translated into more than forty languages. He lives in Paris. George Miller is the translator of No and Me. He is also a regular translator for Le Monde diplomatique's English-language edition, and the translator of Conversations with my Gardener by Henri Cueco and Inside Al-Qaeda by Mohammed Sifaoui.
