about

Dalya Cohen-Mor examines the evolution of the concept of fate in the Arab world through readings of religious texts, poetry, fiction, and folklore. She contends that belief in fate has retained its vitality and continues to play a pivotal role in the Arabs' outlook on life and their socialpsychology. Interwoven with the chapters are 16 modern short stories that further illuminate this fascinating topic.
Dayla Cohen-Mor is at Bar-Ilan University.
