Mohamed bin Zayed University for Humanities publishes first issue of ‘Book Reviews’ journal

Mohamed bin Zayed University for Humanities has published the first issue of the “Book Reviews” journal in cooperation with the National Archives and Library.


The journal is aimed at enhancing the university’s publication initiatives and enriching the country’s cultural and literary landscape with new publications highlighting various works in the field of the humanities.


The journal is prefaced by a well-known statement made by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which reads, “The book is a vessel of science, civilisation, culture, knowledge, literature and the arts, and nations are not measured by their material wealth alone, but by their cultural authenticity.”


In its inaugural issue, “Book Reviews” will highlight the latest releases from international publishing houses, providing an opportunity for the university’s academic staff to engage the publications audiences worldwide. In coming up with the journal, the university also seeks to develop a reading culture, now made easier with advances in communication technologies.


The journal, which reviews books published in the world’s leading languages, provides an excellent reference for researchers in the fields of social sciences, strategy, education as well as Islamic history and philosophy, as the reviewers are prominent professors at Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Humanities and other renowned universities.


The first issue of “Book Reviews” includes analyses of 10 new books published in the English language covering a wide range of subject matters such as philosophy, education and Islamic studies that were critically reviewed by professors from Mohamed bin Zayed University for Humanities and other notable higher education institutions from around the world.
