Very Good in VG jacket. B005XNSAJM Dust jacket condition: VG. First edition. After an introduction on the medieval flowering of Arab civilization and its subsequent decline this book describes the Arab revival--the remarkable development of Arab affairs in the nineteenth and particularly the twentieth centuries. Professor Gabrieli, a distinguished Professor at Rome University who has devoted many years to the study of Arabic literature and culture, brings a degree of sympathetic understanding to his subject very rarely encountered in works on this topic. Yet he is far from being an uncritical admirer of the Arabs. Indeed this book contains penetrating and vigorously expressed criticisms of recent events which are the more effective because of the spirit of tolerance and scholarly knowledge in which they are written. This provocative book is a lively key to the untidy jigsaw puzzle of insoluble rivalries which constitutes the modern Arab world.
