Book Description
This husband-and-wife team of Middle East scholars has paired up to write an update of their popular 1985 work, "The Arab World: Personal Encounters." This latest work, which reflects the authors many decades of experience in the region, includes chapters on Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the West Bank, and Iraq. Each chapter begins with an essay highlighting friendships and experiences over a period stretching from 1971 to 1983. The Ferneas returned to each country in the mid-1990s, and their essays about these return visits convey in very personal terms both the continuity and the drastic change that has affected the people and places of the region. The authors combine narratives of their personal encounters with essays on such topics as unity and diversity in Islam, colonialism, Arab leadership, family, and labor migration to create an insightful and very readable combination of anecdote and scholarship. The result is a lively, fascinating overview of life in the contemporary Arab world.
