Rooftop Societies: The Middle East Paradox

by Fereydoon Rahmani

Rooftop Societies is a groundbreaking investigation into Middle Eastern communities and sociopolitical constructs of the region. The theories and ideas behind “Rooftop societies” are meant for resistance and paint a picture of perpetual antagonism and dualism within these societies. Deep rifts between the state and society, the elites and regular citizens, and modernist forces and religious traditionalism are still vehemently manifested in the sociopolitical and cultural fibers of the region.
