Understanding Arabs: A Guide for Modern Times Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perfect introduction to contemporary Arab culture for those who want to understand today's headlines and the complex events playing out on the world stage. From the rise of fundamentalism to the historically uneasy relationship between the Arab World and the West, Margaret Nydell has expanded her highly respected book to bring today's complex issues into clearer focus. This fourth edition of "Understanding Arabs" introduces the elements of Arab culture and Islam in an evenhanded, unbiased style. The book covers such topics as beliefs and values; religion and society; the role of the family; friends and strangers; men and women; social formalities and etiquette; and communication styles.

Book News Annotation:

Arabs, those who live in the Middle Eastern countries, rather than all Muslims, are the subject of this guide for readers, primarily Westerners, who plan to travel, work, or live among Arabs. Nydell (Arabic, Georgetown U., Washington DC), who was a trainer with the Foreign Service Institute in Tunisia, provides helpful descriptions of the culture and mores of Arabic people, characterizing their attitudes and means of expression. The book is full of tips and examples of what to expect in social situations, and it includes extensive appendices and a bibliography. The first edition, published in 1988, has been updated several times over the years; the fourth edition is indexed and includes more coverage of Islamic fundamentalism, anti-Americanism, and Arabs and Muslims in the West.
