The faculty members at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) have time and again displayed, through their work, their expertise and knowledge in various fields. Rather than simply explaining how our education can be put to use in real life, AUS professors demonstrate and inspire the students through their work and provide us with a better understanding of various subjects. Dr. David Lea, Professor of Philosophy in the Department of International Studies of the AUS College of Arts and Sciences, is one such professor. He recently launched his book Neoliberalism, the Security State and the Quantification of Reality (Lexington Books, Rowman and Littlefield) at an event at American University of Sharjah. The book is the most recent major book in the humanities/social sciences published by an AUS faculty member.
