Rock the Casbah! Arab Youth and Leisure


Who are young Arabs and how do they spend their free time? In a rich and original volume entitled Arab youths. Leisure, culture and politics from Morocco to Yemen (Manchester University Press, 2023), Laurent Bonnefoy and Myriam Catusse (eds) challenge clichés and common preconceptions on Arab youths. Focusing on leisure activities in more than fifteen Arab societies, the contributors to this volume offer a great panorama—exploring leisure activities ranging from rap and rock music to women’s self-defence classes and football—of a population of youth that is too often reduced to the figures of potential terrorists or migrants. Laurent Bonnefoy presents the book and why it is so topical.
