Many Westerners have written of the Arabs and Arabia, but few have produced work to rival this book. The tale of two extensive journeys in the Middle East, separated by 50 years, it records fabulous adventures in lands from Istanbul to Aqaba, and from Damascus to Alexandria. Encountering magical ceremonies, desert ambushes and drug-smugglers, Grant writes with an enchanted pen. Perhaps most interesting of all is his reassuring conclusion that - even after an interim of 50 years - the Middle East may have altered physically, but the Arab people are as resolute and honourable as ever.
