The Arabs by Peter Mansfield( Book )

63 editions published between 1976 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 1,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on his experiences as historian and journalist in the Middle East, Peter Mansfield explores social, political and historical aspects - from the pre-Islamic nomads of Arabia, the life of Muhammad and the rise of Arab power that followed to the Western colonial period, to the tragedy of Palestine and the modern Arab renaissance, reinforced by the power of oil. He shows that the consequences of centuries of struggle for dominance between Christendom and the Islamic world survive to this day in various forms. Bringing events into the 1990s, he explores the causes and consequences of the Gulf War, the continuing conflict over Palestine and the difference in attitude between Arab liberals and fundamentalists as to the future outlook of the Arab world. A section of the book surveys each individual Arab state. The final section considers the Arabs themselves, their characteristics, aspirations and future

This book consists largely of records of meetings between President Nasser of Egypt and various world figures - Podgorny, Tito, King Faisal, King Husain - from 22 June 1967, following the Arab-Israeli war, to 27 September 1970, the day before Nasser died. Farid intersperses the records with his own observations in an unobtrusive manner leaving statesmen to speak for themselves, thus presenting a unique insight into the attitudes and personalities of those involved in these crucial talks. A highly original and eminently readable book, it is also an indispensable reference for students of contemporary Middle Eastern history and politics. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (April 27, 2015)
