Praise

"An important and illuminating book . . . a valuable testament to a tragic generation that tried to bridge the Arab past with modern ideals." —The New York Times

"The Dream Palace of the Arabs is an absorbing and sadly moving account of what political and economic failures on a grand scale have meant in human terms and at an individual level." —The Washington Post Book World

"Eloquent. . . . A clear-eyed look at the lost hopes of the Arabs. It opens the door to the thought processes of a society whose motivations have been little understood and often feared. The Dream Palace of the Arabs is a courageous book." —The Christian Science Monitor
