8vo - 551 pages, many maps, great history that impacts today. Despite the turmoil of Arab nationalism and fundamentalism, Middle Eastern wars, and oil crises, the history of the Arab world has been little known and poorly understood in the West. Hourani describes how the new religion of Islam created far-flung Arab Muslin world that embraces lands reaching from the shores of the Atlantic to Iraq and the Indian Ocean.
