Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Evolving Arab City is an excellent addition to the existing literature on Arab cities. It is an engaging read and invaluable for those who seek a deeper understanding of the massive urban transformations occurring in Arab cities in recent decades. As with Elsheshtawy’s previous edited collection, The Evolving Arab City is a substantial and accessible contribution to the scholarship on contemporary Arab cities and provides fascinating critical insight into a dynamic and rapidly-changing region." - Sarah Moser, 'Cities' Journal

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book that has helped me understand the history of Arab cities and the varying development patterns across the region. I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in the Middle East. It's also a quick primer on any of the cities featured in the deep dive section. The section on Riyadh was excellent.
