About the Author

Rasha Diab is assistant professor of rhetoric and writing and affiliate in the departments of English and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.


"A rich, important, and fascinating study. Troubling programmatic accounts of conflict resolution and challenging traditional approaches to the study of Arab and Arab-Islamic discourse, Diab offers a groundbreaking investigation into the initiation, performance, and stakes of sulh. She sheds crucial light on the deep and complex relationship between peacemaking, transitional justice, and reconciliation. Her work deserves close consideration by scholars of rhetoric, politics, Islamic studies, law, anthropology, and human rights."
--Erik Doxtader, University of South Carolina and Institute for Justice and Reconciliation
"Rasha Diab undertakes a major comparative project, one that travels through centuries and across cultures to engage questions of violence and peace, justice and reconciliation, and the ways in which communities maintain shared values. In doing so, she judiciously undertakes the construction of significant, new rhetorical relationships."
--Arabella Lyon, Rhetoric & Public Affairs
"This in-depth examination of sulh rhetoric is much needed and makes an essential contribution to the study of sulhas an indigenous and homegrown peacemaking tool. Rooted in Arab and Islamic cultural and religious sources, sulh indeed can be seen as 'the gift of possibility' for many of our current challenges in responding to conflicts."
--Mohammed Abu-Nimer, American University, International Peace and Conflict Resolution
