Religious minorities in the Middle East

Franck Salameh, associate professor of Near Eastern Studies, has contributed a chapter to the new book, The Future of Religious Minorities in the Middle East (Lexington Books/Rowman & Littlefield, 2017), edited by John Eibner. The book, which addresses the domestic and international politics that have created conditions for contemporary religious cleansing in the Middle East, is a collection of scholarship, history, personal experiences, and chronicles of dispossession that are often left out of traditional history books and shielded from the popular media. According to Salameh, the contributors are a veritable who’s who of scholars, journalists political practitioners, activists, diplomats, and luminaries. Collectively, they make a major contribution to understanding the dynamics of the mortal threat to the social pluralism upon which the survival of religious minorities depends. Salameh’s chapter is on the Christians of the Holy Land.
