In memoriam.

IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS that ASQ announces the death of Samih Farsoun on 9 June 2005 at the age of 68 in New Buffalo, Michigan. Samih was born in Haifa, Palestine. For many years Samih was a distinguished editor of Arab Studies Quarterly and served as President of the Arab American University Graduates (AAUG). He founded the Arab Sociological Association and was a founding fellow of the Middle East Studies Association. He was also the founding Dean of Academic Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences at the newly established American University of Kuwait where he served until February 2005. His scholarly analyses in the politics and sociology of/he Arab world remain a lasting monument to his many contributions to the field.

The Editors of Arab Studies Quarterly and the members of Association of Arab American University Graduates mourn his loss and extend heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.
