Book Description
A thousand years Ago, a vast Arab empire stretched from the Asian steppe across the Mediterranean to Spain, pioneering new technologies, sciences, art, and culture. Arab traders and Arab currencies dominated the global economy in way western multinationals and the dollar do today. A thousand years later, Arab states are in decay. Official corruption and ineptitude have eroded state authority and create d Vacuum that Militant Islam has rushed to fill. A former Middle East correspondent for The wall Street Journal, Stephen Glain takes us on a journey through the heart of what were once the great Islamic caliphates the countries now known as Labanon, Syria, Jorban, Palestine, Iraq, and Egypt to illustrate how a once prosperous and enlightened civilization finds itself at the precipice of a dark age.
