I am proud to announce, that on October 12, Palgrave-Macmillan will release a new book Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us and Why It Matters by my brother Dr. James Zogby, based on his lifetime of work in the Arab world and highlighting polling conducted by Zogby International.
Relying on more than a decade of polling both in the United States and across the Arab World, Arab Voices provides readers with hard data about what Americans really think about Arabs. Our polling also allows Arabs to describe themselves - their attitudes toward their current situation, their values and aspirations, and their top political concerns. In country by country comparisons, the differences that define the unique characteristics of Arabs from Morocco to the UAE emerge, as well as the points of consensus that unify the people of this vast region.
Arab Voices is the only book of its kind, measuring public attitudes toward our relationship with the Arab world and the views expressed by both Americans, Arabs in the Middle East, and Arab Americans. It brings a wealth of information and is a must read for policy makers, academics, historians, and the public with an interest in our relationship with the Middle East.
It has already received a number of positive endorsements from former President Jimmy Carter, Queen Noor, former Prime Minister John Bruton, Chris Matthews, Arianna Huffington and Ralph Nader.
For more information, I encourage you to visit the web site for Arab Voices http://www.aaiusa.org/pages/arab-voices/ where you can learn more about this timely and important book.
John Zogby is the president and CEO of the Zogby polling firm. He is also a senior fellow at the Life Cycle Institute at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC.
