From the Author
We hope the modern approach of this new dictionary will make it a useful resource to all those speakers of English and Arabic who wish to deepen their knowledge and use of these languages. The dictionary is intended to cover their needs with the most up-to-date entries in a handy reference form, and it should especially prove to be an aid in navigating the ever-growing global vocabulary of politics, telecommunications, computers, business and travel.

This book is advertised on the back as written for students, travelers, journalists and politicians. What it doesn't say is that it's ideal for Christian missionaries as well. This is just my position. It has the translations (correctly) for words like angel, the Bible, chorus, Christian, cross, crusade, Easter, flock, flood, hymn, priest, prophet, Protestant, proverb and the Noble Quran. My only issue with the Christian vocabulary is that its translation for Christmas and birthday is the same word. Birthday is "meelaad" and Christmas is "al-meelaad" (THE birth). Being unaware of this could make one wish merriment in completely the wrong way.
Still, for its price and thickness, it makes a handy, concise guide that was just right for me. The back and front contain little charts listing important things like numbers, the alphabet and denonyms. You could survive in the Middle East with this book and learn a lot but you should already know the alphabet before buying it.

Author of Aktuboo: A Guide to Using the Arabic Script
This dictionary has a very large selection of useful words, and I found it to be the easiest and most convenient dictionary to carry around for the serious Arabic learner.
I would also recommenend this dictionary in conjunction with a small phrase book for tourists as well.
