Book Description

This book, first published in English in 1964, examines a wide range of topics concerning society in the Arab East. Chapters are concerned with woman and the family; religious and linguistic communities; bedouins, fellas and townsmen; and the various social and economic classes and strata. While there are no special sections devoted to geography, economics, culture, trends of thought, and the historical and political developments of the Arab Eastern countries, there is scarcely a page which does not touch on one or another of them.
