The Arab Left
The Arab Left
By Tareq Y. Ismael
Syracuse University Press, 1976, 204 pp

This informed and concise study covers the Ba'th, the Arab Nationalist movement, Nasserism, and the "New Left" that emerged after 1967. It deliberately omits the communists, as too supranational, and the PLO (Fatah, not the Marxist factions) as too conservative.
