“ Recent events in the Middle East and North Africa clearly show just how dangerous the world is, and how great the challenges facing the intelligence community are going to be in the future as threats to U.S. national security continuously evolve. The U.S. intelligence community did not foresee the sudden collapse of the pro-U.S. regimes in Egypt and Tunisia, the eruption of a civil war in Libya, and the escalating wave of street protests across the Middle East. Then again, no one else in the U.S ...more ”
“ We look up to see if it is day or night. If stars burn cool and moon does shine, We take to smoke divine and wine. If breath of sun does belch its heat, we boil coffee and prepare to eat. ”

[close] Saqi was founded in 1984 with the inspiration of printing quality academic and general interest books on the Middle East. 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.

[close] The Chai Circle is a book club in the Santa Cruz/Monterey/San Jose area that seeks to expand notions about Islam, Middle East and the Muslim experience. We intend to explore religion, culture, colonialism, war, gender, societal taboos and the diasporatic experience through ancient and contemporary Islamic/Middle Eastern voices. The group will select a book for the month and meet at a coffee shop or group member's home for the discussions. The Chai Circle is open to everyone, irrespective of religious and political affiliations; feel free to invite your friends. We want to form a loyal group of members, so make sure to invite friends who have a serious interest in participating in the club. Join us if you share our love of books and would like to engage in conversation about Islamic literature in a safe, relaxed environment.
