    1. For some reason unbeknownst to me I have a fascination with the history of the Middle East Anatolia From the Byzantines to the Ottomans I just find the history of the region of the people really interesting I think it may be because there is such a unique mixing of people, cultures, and ideas in the region that engaging to me than, say, Tudor England or Colonial America This region has seen some of the greatest world empires, it is the birthplace of the major Monotheistic religions, and has exc [...]


    2. Hourani, Albert A HISTORY OF THE ARAB PEOPLES 1991 This is an obviously bogus rating of this fine history It is well written and thorough thorough to the point of exhaustion I didn t make it all the way through, but cherry picked my way through different chapters reading about special topics that I was interested in This history is not a popular history It would be better served as a text for a two semester course on Arab History at the college level Like most of my fellow Americans I always wa [...]


    3. First, a preliminary comment warranted by any book of this size and magnitude, there is something overwhelming about engaging in the entire history of a people in one book It was a feat that Hourani should have been proud of.The book is jam packed with information It is fairly readable, considering the length, but Hourani accomplished the readability by not including any footnotes, only general references at the end of the book This means, essentially, that none of his facts or statistics or any [...]




    4. For those interested in a factual and well written account of the history of the middle east, Hourani s History of the Arab Peoples is extraordinarily good There is no political grandstanding here, just facts It is absolutely fascinating to see how the tribes in which the Prophet Mohammed became a major military and cultural force in only a few centuries conquering northern Africa to Malaysia You learn about the split between the shiites and sunnites, the spin offs such as the dervishes and the [...]


    5. This is not a book for the faint of heart To be honest, I stopped reading the book halfway through the section on the Ottoman Empire It s huge, dry, oftentimes boring, but it gets the job done This book lacks many of the exciting details usually covered in history, such as battles, wars, biographies, etc However, whatever it lacks in excitement it totally makes up for in raw information If you want to know how peasants in medieval Syria lived, bam Here s your book If you want to know the relatio [...]


    6. I m always impressed by scholars who can write these grand synthetic histories that draw together vast spans of time and space In this case, the project is made all the difficult because there is a long middle period in Arab history about which we know very little Understandably, Hourani treats his starting point as the emergence of the school of thought that has become Islam sources for any earlier period are patchy but it also causes a problem in that the period covered by the 11th to the 15t [...]


    7. Hourani acknowledges the challenges of his narrative in that his focus could be both too large or too small preface, xvii It s a complicated matter to communicate a culture and people that have been shaped so foundationally by a particular revelation and Prophet made even complex by the fact that their part of the world has rich meaning and value on many levels for everyone else On top of this, Orientalism has inserted itself into the English language quite effectively, as have many other racis [...]


    8. An outstanding and thought provoking book with some scarily accurate thoughts on how the situation in the Middle East might develop The afterword by Malise Ruthven in 2002 discusses how the issues raised by Hourani s book have developed since his death a decade earlier and of course so much has happened since even that was written.I found this a fascinating and highly readable work, with a wide ranging investigation into the history of so many nation states and political and religious factions I [...]



    9. A very comprehensive history not only of the political military campaigns, but most importantly to me the actual lives of the people Unlike many history books, this concentrates on linking the larger movements in society to the lives of all classes of people in not only the arab states, but the larger Muslim world, including north Africa, Turkey, and Iran It s not, however, a book for those casually interested in the area it s huge and quite dry at times I actually had to put it aside a few time [...]


    10. I believe this book was recommended by a secular Muslim friend who loaned me her copy It was, remarkably, the first book about Arab history as a whole that I d ever read and is designed for Anglo Americans who aren t very familiar with Arab history.




    11. The Ottomans, Europeans, Americans etc come and go yet Hourani is far interested in the development of Arab poetry than the conquerors In short, the book does what it says on the tin Personally, I would have liked to see on the development of Wahhabism and political Islam the Muslim brotherhood than Sufism, but I can see that their influence hasn t yet reached the longevity of Sufism.


    12. An expert exposition on the history of the Middle East While it is not about Islam per se, Islam was the catalyst which unified the previously tribal people of the Arabian Peninsula and galvanized their rise to become a player on the world stage Thus Islam plays a predominant role in the book, and it is a good resource for an understanding of many modern Islamic issues He also explores in depth the era of European imperialism and its impact on modern Arabian social movements The writing strikes [...]


    13. What I loved about this is how it gives valuable insights and answers to a Western audience while covering a broad swath of history while still being readable Highly recommended.




    14. Ada beberapa perbahasan menarik yang disentuh oleh Albert Hourani dalam buku ini Antaranya ialah berkenaan sistem wakaf untuk madrasah madrasah, faktor berlakunya pemisahan antara lokasi pentadbiran dengan penempatan rakyat awam seperti yang terlihat pada lokasi Kubu Sultan Salahuddin Al Ayyubi di Mokattam , definisi pemerintahan menurut kaca mata Al Ghazali dan Ibnu Taymiyyah, penamaan beberapa nama tokoh tokoh penting serta sumbangannya dalam setiap bidang seperti penterjemahan Hunayn Ibn Isha [...]


    15. Particularly good when discussing the Palestinian tragedy Somehow he managed to stay clinically unbiased which I think is rare Also makes the intriguing point that as urbanization proceeded in the 20th century, cities may have undergone some kind of cultural ruralization as migrants poured into cities and brought their own political culture and language Thus by the 1980 s Islamic language had become prominent in political discourse Perhaps this got the ball rolling to where the Middle East is n [...]


    16. One of the best works of non fiction I have ever read Hourani covers the history of Arabic speaking peoples from Muhammed to the mid 80 s, right after America occupies Lebanon Little time is wasted on personalities or the idiosyncracies of the many pro Ottoman governments that post date the power of the Abbasids Hourani s main interests are history s great structural forces, sociology, intellectual history, geopolitics and economics one of the best chapters is on the geography of the Middle East [...]


    17. As someone who is largely ignorant of most of Arab history, I found this book fascinating It s long and dense and manages to provide an interesting overview of the Arabs from their ascension following the conquests of Muhammad and his affiliates, through the establishment of the caliphates, the wars with Europe, the rise of the post colonial nation states, and right up to the close of the 1980s, stopping just before the Gulf War There are a number of parts where Hourani has to skim or gloss over [...]


    18. Solid history of the Arab peoples since the Islamic period Hourani works with very loose definitions with Arab taken to mean Arabic language The Berbers and under non ethnic Arab groups therefore become subsumed into this history, as to the Sudanese The Turks have an ambiguous position in that they assume the main responsiblity for the defence of Arab civilisation s most prominent contribution to culture Islam but without ever adopting Arabic as the main language of their culture ditto the Persi [...]


    19. No question this book offers a good overview of Arab culture and Middle Eastern history There are many names and it is difficult to keep track of the different timelines across different regions of interest The studious reader will make good use of the various maps and notes included in the back of the text Essentially what comes across is a notion that throughout history, Arab Muslim societies have sought a status quo existence defined by relative peace and an ability to conduct necessary comme [...]


    20. Generally the book is well constructed and covers a long period of the history concentrating on cultural and economic aspects rather than politics The author tried to avoid details but it was not successful and commenting on the intentions of the imperial domination of Europe over the Arab world.The author also tried to put all Arab countries since 1900 in the same historical destiny, commenting on few diplomatic disputes, which I think was not successful nor right, since albeit having common fe [...]

    22. This book is considered to be an important historical account of the people that inhabit that area of the world known as the Middle East The author, Albert Hourani, begins with the 7th century A.D and goes through til the 1980s His account is jam packed with all kinds of information concerning the culture, politics and religion of the Arab world.Although I did find myself being overwhelmed by the amount of info in the book I did discover that the Middle East is not one united region where everyb [...]
