Among today’s upheavals in the Middle East, a global pandemic and economic recessions, the timely release of Adrift by world-renowned scholar and bestselling author Amin Maalouf is his attempt at making sense of our world as it is today.
Expertly weaving in his life story while mapping turning points in the Middle East’s geopolitics, Maalouf addresses global threats to humankind with division at the heart of its adversity.
Join Maalouf as he seeks to raise awareness and pursue a new human solidarity by facing the history that has led to worldwide political instability and social inequality.
This session was recorded in front of a live audience at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021.
