    Despite the turmoil of Arab nationalism and fundamentalism, Middle Eastern wars, and oil crises, the history of the Arab world has been little known and poorly understood in the West. One reason may be that, for more than half a century, there has been no up-to-date single volume work that chronicles the story of Arab civilization - until now.

    Overall

    It is a bad book.

    I bought this tape in the hope of hearing what actually "happened" in the history of Arabic people. Instead, the author spends majority of time on what various Arabic figures had "said" / "written" on a number of issues, and most of those Arabic people quotations / opinions are to the effect of depicting an idealized good society. Aha, but that is NOT what had happened at ground level, and the author did not talk about what had happened anyway.

    This is probably another example of that their deed does not match up to their talk.

    A waste of my hard earned money, as well as the genuin curiosity of a student from China.
