520 1  "The Star, the Cross, and the Crescent analyzes fiction, 
       films, comics, autobiographical narratives, and essays by 
       Francophone Arab writers whose Christian (Accad, Antaki, 
       Chedid, Maalouf), Jewish (Albou, Cixous, El Maleh, Memmil,
       Muslim (Bachi, Benaissa, Benguigui, Ben Jelloun, Boudjedra,
       Boudjellal, Meddeb, Mimouni), and secular (Sebbar) 
       backgrounds are emblematic of the diversity of the 
       Francophone Arab world. It examines how these writers 
       represent the intertwining of religion and politics 
       against the backdrop of the current international 
       political context and the resurgence of religion. Focusing
       on a series of disputes commonly framed in religious terms
       (with Islam as the common denominator for all: the Arab-
       Israeli conflict, the Lebanese and the Algerian civil wars,
       the affair of the Muslim headscarf in France, and 9/11), 
       this book questions the effectiveness of the Francophone 
       studies model in providing insights into the complexity of
       the Islamic Revival. The study concludes by unpacking the 
       influence of politics on the translation of these works in
       the United States. It brings heightened awareness to the 
       modalities according to which a creative work can serve as
       a cultural mediator."--Jacket.
