The Arab World: An Illustrated History – by Kirk H. Sowell

A book chock-full of the chronological and who’s-who type of information necessary in order to lay down a historical narrative for the arab people, complete with a glossary of terms used in the arabic language helpful to the lay person toward an understanding of the cultural underpinnings of its society.

Although the mass of information is such that I would personally acquire such a book for a personal collection, the book does maintain a negative stance on Israel, which passes for “even-handedness” in today’s biased viewpoints against the Jewish national home.
