Viewers of AC360 will likely recognize Fouad Ajami. He was a frequent guest on the show and a Middle East scholar. He passed away last June.
A man I greatly admired, Fouad Ajami has died. He was a great intellect and was full of grace and compassion. It's been an honor to know him
— Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) June 22, 2014
Fouad's writings include some 400 essays on Arab and Islamic politics, US foreign policy, and contemporary international history. Today the Hoover Institution Press is releasing a collection of his essays in the book "This Arab Time."
We wanted to share one of those essays. Click here to read "The Making of Strangers - Muslims, Jews, and the Other 1492."
