9781558764170: The Arabs: A Short History

The history of Arabia is inextricably tied to the history of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad came from Arabia, and the most important religious centers for Muslims are located in the Arab cities of Mecca and Medina. However, Arabs already had a history reaching back over one and a half millennia when Muhammad entered the stage. Since the ninth century B.C.E., they had been an integral force in determining the fate of the Middle East, establishing themselves as a major power in the seventh century C.E. and with the rise of the caliphate expanding the borders of the Arab world far beyond the Middle East into North Africa and Spain, and even into France. Since that time, Arab history has been intimately connected with European history. Medieval European arts and sciences would have been unthinkable without the brilliant culture of the Arab empire. Only in the modern era has this relationship been marked by a growing European hegemony, which continues to encumber relations between the West and the Arab world to the present day. In this volume, Heinz Halm offers a compact and comprehensible overview of the history and culture of the Arabs from the first references in the inscriptions of Assyrian kings to the most recent developments of contemporary Arab nations.

From the Back Cover:

. There is also a wealth of interesting material on the social and cultural history, for instance on Muslim-Christian relations and on the influence of Arab-Islamic scholarship on the West." --Börsenblatt, Frankfurt (Germany's PublisheReviews of the German edition:

"This brief history of the Arabs from the pre-Islamic era to the present provides readers with an outstanding, easily comprehensible overview of a world that has been subject to many half-truths and prejudices. Halm's expertise extends to both political and social developments and the cultural sphere." --Tagesanzeiger, Zurich

"Reading this demythologizing report makes a great many things come into focus. The book is outstanding." --Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Zurich

"This book accomplishes the considerable feat of providing a lucid and compact depiction of the long history of the Arabs from the 9th century BCE to the explosive present of the Palestinian and Iraqi conflict
