Akram Miknas publishes third book

MANAMA, July 2, 2020

Akram Miknas, media guru and entrepreneur, has released his third book titled ‘We Can Be Better, Never Be Silenced’.

The title is a play on words with emphasis on ‘better silenced’, but suggesting that we had better never be silenced. This is a compilation of 100 articles written between 2017-2019 and published mainly in Bahraini and foreign newspapers.

Miknas said in a statement: "I am a businessman and an economist and for more than 50 years I have developed many successful projects around the world. However, I consider myself also a man of thought and culture; as such, I have tried, through this collection of articles, to continue to provide a different point of view on political, traditional, economic, cultural and philosophical issues, and offered what I believe is a better way to address them.”

In several of these articles, Miknas has focused on the necessity of co-existence and mutual acceptance, quoting Martin Luther King’s famous words: “We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools”.

Miknas has presented his perspective on geopolitical developments in Bahrain, the Arabian Gulf, and the world. He has written with sorrow and hope about his home country, Lebanon, as well as Palestine. He has expressed his views on issues of faith, extremism, development, and several other concerns. When the occasion arose, he examined and expounded on topical issues that occurred during the time when he was writing these articles, in a perspective unique to him.

Miknas’ first book, ‘I’m Not Done’, published by Garnet Publishing, UK, narrates his biography with particular emphasis on his career in the advertising industry. - TradeArabia News Service
