Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This kaleidoscopic study covers almost 3,000 years of Arab history, and reveals how Arabic has played a vital role in helping and hindering the progress of Arab history, and how even today the language itself is still a source of unity and disunity. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

Arabs is a refined and pleasing tour through the history of a remarkable people, civilization, and language.

-- "Jonathan A. C. Brown, Alwaleed bin Talal Chair of Islamic Civilization at Georgetown University"<br ><br >

Superb. What really distinguishes this book from others is the sheer number of its insights into Arab history, all of which are tantalizing.

--"Steven C. Caton, professor of contemporary Arab studies at Harvard University"

Quite brilliant...I am full of admiration for this inspiring book, with its quite original and timely view of Arab historical identity.

--"Philip Kennedy, author of Recognition in the Arabic Narrative Tradition"

Strips away centuries of erroneous myth-making...Anyone hoping to understand, let alone write about the Middle East, will need to read and inhale this profound, witty, and scholarly achievement.

--"Barnaby Rogerson, author of The Last Crusaders" --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.
