About this title

Synopsis:

No region in the world today is more important than the Middle East: no people more misunderstood than the Arabs. In this definitive masterwork, distinguished Oxford historian Albert Hourani offers the most lucid, enlightening history ever written on the subject. From the rise of Island to the Palestinian issue, from the Prophet Mohammed to Mu'ammar al-Qadhafi. A History of the Arab Peoples chronicles the rich spiritual, political, and cultural institutions of this civilization through thirteen centuries of war, peace, literature, and religion. Lauded by authorities, encyclopedic and panoramic in its scope, here is a remarkable window on today's conflictsand on the future of a glorious and troubled land.

Albert Hourani was Emeritus Fellow, St. Antony's College, Oxford. He died in 1993.

Malise Ruthven is a former editor with the BBC Arabic Service and World Service in London and is the author of Islam in the World and Islam: A Very Short Introduction.
