Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Profiles some 270 American colleges and universities. Includes information on coping skills, assessing abilities and needs of such students, admissions criteria, support services and special facilities. Over 50 mystical and revolutionary poems, published 1969-89, by al- Bayati, a pioneer of Arabic free verse, and a wandering exile until he returned to Bagdad to assume high government office, provide a perspective on Iraqi culture that the State Department and the networks somehow missed. In facing pages of Arabic and English, they speak of passion fulfilled and unfulfilled, blurring, like the medieval Troubadours, the boundaries between romance, religion, and politics. No mention is made of whether he survived the bombing. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
