THE FIFTH EDITION OF THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL GUIDE TO ARAB SOCIETY - PUBLISHING IN LINE WITH THE ARAB SPRING The perfect introduction to contemporary Arab culture for those who want to understand today's headlines and the complex events playing out on the world stage. From the rise of fundamentalism to the historically uneasy relationship between the Arab World and the West, Margaret Nydell has expanded her highly respected book to bring today's complex issues into clearer focus. This fourth edition of "Understanding Arabs" introduces the elements of Arab culture and Islam in an even-handed, unbiased style. The book covers such topics as beliefs and values; religion and society; the role of the family; friends and strangers; men and women; social formalities and etiquette; and communication styles.
