The Pillars of Development

, Mahathir bin Mohamed Other Publications

Available in: English

The Pillars of Development, is a booklet containing two lectures and two speeches by Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamed, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia. Dr. Mahathir relates his country’s experience in promoting Malaysia from a poor rice-cultivating country into one of the most competitive industrial giants in Asia. In his first lecture, “The Development of Human Resources” he describes how Malaysians, including women, succeeded in promoting education and how they achieved remarkable technological and scientific progress in a very short time while maintaining their Malaysian and Islamic identities. In his second lecture, “Cultural Integration”, he emphasizes the importance of tolerating other views and cultures while preserving one’s identity. The two speeches are about globalization and its impact on Asia and the measures to encourage investment and trade flows.

AFRABIA : From Arabo-Hebraic Divergence to Afro-Arab Convergence

, Ali A. Mazrui Other Publications

Available in: English

Afrabia: From Arabo-Hebraic Divergence to Afro-Arab Convergence is a lecture by Professor Ali Mazrui who is involved in African politics, published within the Distinguished Lecture Series. The book deals with “the great Semitic divergence” which includes the Europeanization of the Jews simultaneously with the partial Africanization of the Arabs. Mazrui explains the concept of “Afrabia” which connotes an interaction between African and Arab identity, as according to him there are similarities between both such as the prevalence of Islam. Finally, he concludes by foreseeing the emergence of “Afrabia” as an inevitable event linking languages, religions, and identities across the Sahara Desert and the Red Sea in the New World Order.
