By Richard H. Sanger
Cornell University Press, 1954, 295 pp

The author, Public Affairs Adviser of the Bureau of Near Eastern, South Asian, and African Affairs, Department of State, offers an informed and most interesting tour of Arabia, from the Kingdom of Ibn Sa'ud to the lesser known fringes of the peninsula: the oil-laden coast, Kuwait, Oman, Aden, Yemen. In all areas he stresses the growing impact of the new upon the old.
