Book Description Beirut: American University of Beirut, 1940., 1940. "There is as yet no modern, adequate, and attractive history of the Arabs from the earliest times to the present day. This volume. intended for the use of the Freshman at the American University of Beirut and affiliated institutions, is a modest attempt to fill this gap. It brings together the studies of some of the most distinguished historians and orientalists, and embraces not only the political but also the economic, social and intellectual aspects of the history of the Arabs." (Foreword). Rare: just 14 copies traced worldwide, including 1 on Copac. Printed at the American Press in Beirut.

THE EDITORS: Asad Rustum (1897-1965) was a Greek Orthodox Professor of Near Eastern History at AUB. Constantine "Costi" Zurayk (1909-2000) was born to a Christian Arab family in Damascus. He received his BA from AUB in 1928, his LLD from the University of Chicago in 1929, and his PhD from Princeton in 1930. In nearly 50 years at AUB, he served as Professor and Distinguished Professor of History and Arab History, as Emeritus Professor of Arab History and Archaeology, and as Vice President and Acting President. His major work was Ma’na an-Nakba (The Meaning of the Disaster). Published in 1948, the book offered the first major intellectual critique of Arab society. Zurayk’s lifelong concern was the issue of reform and how to move the Arabs from their "backward" state into the modern world (Source: Arab Saga - Life Lessons from Costi Zurayk and Rafic Hariri). CONDITION: Some wear and tear to the wraps. Interiors VG with occasional corner creasing and rubbing with minor loss to the extremities. Pencil underlining to a couple of pages.
