4to. XVII, (1), 278 pp. Publisher's cloth. Dustjacket.


First edition.

Prominent work by the professor at Temple University, Philadelphia, who lived in Egypt for a number of years and whose career has been occupied with attempting to write and teach a kind of Middle Eastern history free from the eurocentric biases inherited from the colonial period.

A little fading at head and foot of backstrip, otherwise a well-preserved copy in frayed and rubbed dustjacket.
