Shades of Sulh
Sulh is a centuries-old Arab-Islamic peacemaking process. InShades ofSulh, Rasha Diab explores the possibilities of the rhetoric of sulh, as it is used to resolve intrapersonal, interpersonal, communal, national, and international conflicts, and provides cases that illustrate each of these domains. Diab demonstrates the adaptability and range of sulh as a ritual and practice that travels across spheres of activity (juridical, extra-juridical, political, diplomatic), through time (medieval, modern, contemporary), and over geopolitical borders (Cairo, Galilee, and Medina). Together, the cases prove the flexibility of sulh in the discourse of peacemaking-and that sulh has remarkable rhetorical longevity, versatility, and richness.Shades ofSulhsheds new light on rhetorics of reconciliation, human rights discourse, and Arab-Islamic rhetorics.
