The Arabs : their history and future

Author: Jacques Berque; Jean Stewart; H A R Gibb
Publisher: New York : Frederick A. Praeger, ©1964.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book is a watershed in the study of the contemporary Middle East by Western man. It is an exciting book but not one to be read quickly and easily. It is complex, even at times obscure, because the Middle East is complex and obscure. This from the preface, the front page of which is one of my uploaded photos.
