VAGNI, Juan José. The Arab-Islamic awakening in the interwar work of Salomón Abud. Soc. relig. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.52, pp.148-167. ISSN 1853-7081.

This proposal seeks an approach to the Arab and Islamic between wars scenario in the perspective of an Argentinian journalist descended from Syrians: Solomon Abud.

The approach to his production will allow us to recognize an original explanatory model of the Meso-Oriental situation under colonial dominion, through the dialectical game between the two main currents of resistance and renewal: Pan-Arabism and Pan-Islamism.

Abud, goes back to the past to demonstrate the feasibility of Arab unification and proposes a social division of labor of resurgence between the evolved and the backwards in the region. Along the way, we can also identify the dispute over the reinstatement of the Caliphate, the competence of pan-Asian discourse and the emergence of other resurgences that were taking place in the global periphery.

The central corpus of this work is the book called The Sun is born in the East, published in 1939 at the dawn of the Second World War. Although neglected in the analyzes from our environment, this work represents one of the few systematic approaches to these problems whose reception transcended the national and community borders.

Keywords : diaspora; identities; Arab Renaissance; Panarabism; Panislamism.
