The Arab World's Legacy

By Charles Issawi

Charles Issawi is at home in the politics and economics of the contemporary Middle East, but likes to look at them in long historical perspective. These collected essays, written over the past several decades, carry us back to ancient times and to many points in between. Some are relevant to today, some not; all are written with sound scholarship and urbane detachment.
