This bestselling history of the Arab-speaking parts of the Islamic world by British-Lebanese historian Albert Hourani first appeared in 1991. A lot has happened since. In a new preface, journalist and Islamic scholar Malise Ruthven offers a potted biography of Hourani, while his afterword is a skilful summation of events in the past two decades (including a section on the Islamist challenge in Algeria). While Hourani did not predict the Arab spring, says Ruthven, he understood the precariousness of the region's regimes.
Distinguished Lebanese-American historian Albert Hourani presents this book that might seem comprehensive to the Westerners but concise to the Arabs. Hourani tries to cover most of the history of the Arab peoples, but this is certainly no easy task. He ends up quickly surveying this history. Despite its brevity, Hourani's volume is a reference work par excellence. His style is inviting even if the massive number of dates and names might discourage some people who are not familiar with the Arab region.
