“East is East and West is West”? Talks on Dialogue in Beirut
Leslie Ramontini (Editor)
This volume represents the lectures of the academic series "East is East and West is West, and Never the Twain Shall Meet"? - Challenges of Dialogue, held at the Orient-Institut Beirut throughout the year 2002. Triggered by the impact of the 9/11 tragedy on the Arab World, participants from different provenience contributed in calling for a serious and committed dialogue between the Arab and the Western World, the "East" and the "West". In the course of the year 2002 however, tensions started rising prior to the war on Iraq. This book reflects different aspects of dialogue: on cultural, religious and political level.
