Marc Nichanian, the author of “Our Place in al-Andalus: Kabbalah, Philosophy, Literature in Arab Jewish Letters” (2002) has a new book out about genocide: “The Historiographic Perversion”. The Armenian Reporter summarizes Nichanian’s thesis this way:
Genocide is a matter of law. It is also a matter of history. And the denial of genocide – often called the last stage of genocide – attacks the foundations of both, argues philosopher and literary critic Marc Nichanian.
His Kabbalah related book
“addresses the representation of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries as the end of al-Andalus (Islamic Spain). Here, the end works to locate and separate Muslim from Christian Spain, Jews from Arabs, philosophy from Kabbalah, Kabbalah from literature, and texts from contexts.“
