Ibrahim Mālik

The Culture of Peace and Co-Existence – Translated by Jamal Assadi, with Assistance from Michael Hegeman and Michael Jacobs

Jamal Assadi

This selection of Ibrahim Mālik’s short stories and poetry brings together an illustrative compendium of his works, which propose a genuine portrait of the numerous predicaments, concerns, apprehensions, and coercions from which the Arab community inside Israel suffers. To a great extent, these difficulties are currently the lot of many ethnic groups and communities in the Middle East and many other parts of the world. General readers of this work will take pleasure in exploring a different culture, while specialists interested in Arabic literature will find new and bountiful grounds for academic study.

This book, the second on Ibrahim Mālik, 73, is the seventh in my task to present Palestinian authors to widespread audiences in the English language. My intention is to allow these authors to convey their creative works involving their own stories and experiences as well as their people’s in a novel amplified voice. These experiences and stories disclose not only their plight and marginalization but also their hopes and dreams.

The readers of this volume will find within its folds the chance to read a selection of Mālik’s short stories (20 stories) and his poetry (68 poems) that I translated and edited with assistance from my close friend, the novelist Dr. Martha Moody and her two children: Simon and Michael Jacobs; and from my friend, Dr. Michael Hegeman. No endeavor was made to pick out Mālik’s most renowned works. My objective rather was to bring together an illustrative compendium of his works.
