HIDDEN CITIES is a blog of stories from the Middle East written by Frederick Deknatel.

I’m currently the senior editor of World Politics Review. My writing, mostly on the Middle East, has appeared in the Nation, the New Republic, Foreign Policy, the Los Angeles Review of Books, the National (Abu Dhabi) and other outlets. Prior to joining WPR, I was a staff editor at Foreign Affairs and, earlier, worked on the editorial staff of Rolling Stone and the Nation.

In 2008 and 2009, I was a Fulbright fellow in Syria, where I also worked for the UNHCR. I have an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies from St Antony’s College at Oxford and a BA in history and Arabic from Vassar.
