Books By Author Miriam G. Cooke

The story of Firdaus, one of the greatest characters ever created in fiction.

Tribal Modern by Miriam G. Cooke Tribal Modern, Paperback (January 2014)

Exploring everything from fantasy architecture to neo-tribal sports and from Emirati dress codes to neo-Bedouin poetry contests, this title explodes the idea that the tribal is primitive and argues instead that it is an elite, exclusive, racist, and modern instrument for branding nations and shaping Gulf citizenship and identity.
