About this title


“To understand a people, acquaint yourself with their proverbs.” — Arab Proverb “Stephen McGrane has compiled an extremely thorough volume of Arab proverbs that offers the outsider a view into the Arab way of thinking.”—Feather Quill Book Reviews “From personal experience in the Arab world, Stephen McGrane has collected the most meaningful and commonly used Arabic proverbs, providing non-Arabic speakers an understanding of our culture. Also, with the availability of his book, explaining Arab proverbs to our Western friends could not be easier.”—Ali A. Dashti, PhD, Kuwait University, Department of Mass Communication “Stephen McGrane draws significant parallels between the proverbs of the Arabic and Western worlds. If anything, one realizes that the value systems of the two cultures are not as disparate as frequently perceived.”—James I. Martin, PhD, Campbell University, Department of Government, History and Justice “What a great way to explore another culture! A very thought provoking look at the Arab thought process.”—H. Keith Hight, Theatre Coordinator, College of Southern Maryland “This book is not only a collection of proverbs, but a gateway to the understanding of a whole different culture.”—Abdulrahman Thakir Alhashemi, M.D., Psychotherapist, Clinical Psychological Counselor and PhD researcher in the ‘Islamic Perspective of Psychotherapy,’ South Carolina, USA
