Additional Information

The Middle East Bedside Book brings the full color and spirit of this region to life through the eyes of past and present writers, observers, poets, and travelers. Dress, medicine, backgammon, psychology, politics, chess, attitudes about women, honor, music - even toothpicks and tourists - are covered. Like every good bedside book, each entry entertains, absorbs, moves to laughter, amazement, and even tears. A timely look at common threads linking Western culture with the Middle East.

A favourite quote from this book.
RAZI.
Ibn Faris ar-Razi, the philologist, is the author of these verses.
'Well, some things succeed and some fail: when my heart is filled with cares I say: 'One day perhaps thay may be dispelled'. A cat is my companion; books the friends of my heart; and a lamp my beloved consort.'
From Ibn Khallikan's celebrated biographical dictionary.
If that does not convince here are some section headings.
