A history of the Arab peoplesby Albert Habi Hourani
Synopses & Reviews
THIS EDITION HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A NEWER EDITION
Book News Annotation:
An account of the culture and institutions of Islam, from the time of Mohammed until 1988 (end of the Iran-Iraq war). Considers literature, science, religion, the caliphate, national governments, relations with Europeans, and such internal tensions as poverty, the place of women, and the Palestinian question. More useful as a narrative than a reference for specific information. A remarkable bargain.
