Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Collects seven essays which broadly follow two of Hourani's main fields of interest<-->the local history of ideas in the modern Middle East and the analysis of the "politics of notables" in the Arab provinces during the Ottoman era. Prefaced by a retrospective note which portrays the intricate and rich world of Hourani the scholar, teacher, and historian, the essays consider some of the major historiographical issues raised by his work and include an account of his short and little known appearance on the political stage. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
