Saqi’s links with cutting-edge and authoritative voices from North Africa and the Middle East have led to a rigorous reassessment of Arab cultural heritage. Since then, Saqi has expanded its network to include writers from all over the world. Saqi publishes a wide range of titles including books on history, politics, art, architecture, gender issues, women’s studies and cuisine. A magnet for daring new voices from across the globe, Saqi’s broad international outlook has never been more relevant.
