In a best-seller of profoundly and lastingly important work, Albert Hourani’s end told the definitive story of the Arab peoples from the sixth century, when the new religion of Islam began to spread from the Arabian Peninsula westward, until todayHe is a virtuoso of lifetime distillation scholarships and a unique insight into a perpetually troubled regionThis updated edition by Malise Ruthven adds an important new chapter that includes recent events such as the 9/11, the American invasion of Iraq and its bloody aftermath, the fall of Mubarak and Ben Ali regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, and the beginning of civil war in Syria, bringing hourani a masterly account of history to this day.Ruthven suggests that, although hourani may hardly have expected to foresee in detail, the massive upheavals that have shaken the Arab world recently, he would not have been quite surprised, given the persistence of the kin-sponsored networks he describes in his book and the challenges posed by the new media-generation of dissatisfied youthIn a new biographical preface, Malise Ruthven shows how hourani’s views on Arab history were shaped by his unique way of English-Arabic born Christian, with roots in the Levant
