Upon its publication in 1991, Albert Hourani's masterwork was hailed as the definitive story of Arab civilization, and became both a bestseller and an instant classic. In a panoramic view encompassing twelve centuries of Arab history and culture, Hourani brilliantly illuminated the people and events that have fundamentally shaped the Arab world.Now this seminal book is available in an expanded second edition. Noted Islamic scholar Malise Ruthven brings the story up to date from the mid-1980s, including such events as the Gulf War; civil unrest in Algeria; the change of leadership in Syria, Morocco, and Jordan; and the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001.The terrorist attacks in the United States, ongoing crisis in Iraq, and renewed violence between Israelis and Palestinians all underscore the need for a balanced and well-informed understanding of the Arab world, and make this insightful history of the Arab peoples more important than ever.… (més)

It was OK, actually pretty interesting.

I listened to the audiobook and the reader, Wanda McCaddon was sooo bored that she was unable to hide it. In her defense I want to note that she, Wanda McCaddon, has done an exquisite, effectively perfect reading of Anna Kareina. ( )

This is one of the best history books of this scope that I have read. We learn about the history of the Arab peoples from the early life of Mohammed and the birth of Islam, through the rapid Arab conquest through the Middle East, North Africa, and up to Spain. We hear of the Islamic golden age, the sporadic fracturing and reshuffling of dynasties across continents, the coming and going of empires, schools of Islamic thought, and their discord over the last 1400 years.
Somehow this account manages to stay engaging and entertaining while remaining even-handed and unbiased. What we come away with is some appreciation of the huge complexity of the political, religious, and cultural situation in the Middle East, based on a fascinating and turbulent history. This book is highly recommended for anyone wanting to gain some understanding of the history and culture of this section of the world. ( )

I read this book because I have been so confused by the endless troubles in the Middle East. Now I understand that things actually ARE totally confusing and extremely complicated so I feel much better about that. The scope of this book is vast and the range of angles from which the author approaches his subject is remarkable. A great book. I just feel I need to read it all over again. ( )
