Reader comment on item: Which Middle East Specialists Get Assigned and Read?

Submitted by Alex (Canada), Feb 27, 2013 at 15:24

Dear Dr. Pipes,

Thank you so much for putting this list together. It provides some of the most pertinent information available on the contemporary study of the Middle East at US universities. I would like to take exception, however, with listing Michael Sells and Cornell Fleischer under your "establishment" sub-list. Perhaps this is my University of Chicago bias coming through, but neither of them injects politics into the classroom, nor does their scholarly writing or classroom agenda or course topics relate to current event controversies.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Agreed; I put those two in to the list as somewhat apolitical controls for the very political writers.

Submitting....
