Sulh is a centuries-old Arab-Islamic peacemaking process. In "Shades of ""Sulh," Rasha Diab explores the possibilities of the rhetoric of sulh, as it is used to resolve intrapersonal, interpersonal, communal, national, and international conflicts, and provides cases that illustrate each of these domains. Diab demonstrates the adaptability and range of sulhas a ritual and practice that travels across spheres of activity (juridical, extra-juridical, political, diplomatic), through time (medieval, modern, contemporary), and over geopolitical borders (Cairo, Galilee, and Medina). Together, the cases prove the flexibility of sulh in the discourse of peacemaking and that sulh has remarkable rhetorical longevity, versatility, and richness. "Shades of ""Sulh"sheds new light on rhetorics of reconciliation, human rights discourse, and Arab-Islamic rhetorics."
