This is a collection of research papers in Arabic, English, and French, written by nineteen Arab and non-Arab scholars in honor of the historian and educator, Dr. Constantine K. Zurayk. Dr. Zurayk was a founding member of the IPS, president of the board of trustees from 1963-1984, and the honorary president of the board of trustees from 1985-2000. Some of the studies address the intellectual output of Dr. Zurayk, while others consider various aspects of Palestinian history.


Constantine Zurayk is a prominent nationalist thinker and one of the pioneers of Arab Nationalism through his books and his leadership of “Al Urwa Al Wuthqua” association in the American University of Beirut, where he worked as a History professor and as an acting university president. Two of his widely read and quoted books are titled, “The Meaning of Nakba” and “Nationalist Awareness”, among many others in academia and in political thought.

Dr. Hisham Nashabeh obtained his doctorate from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. He served as dean of education at the Makassed Philantropic Islamic Association in Beirut, and as the representative of Lebanon at UNESCO, and as the representative of Lebanon at ALECSO and as chairperson of its Executive Board. He is the chairman of the IPS Board of Trustees and the director of the Institute of Higher Islamic Studies, Beirut.
