The Ideas of Arab Nationalism

Excerpt

This book is an attempt to explore the genesis, ideas, attitudes, and orientations of Arab nationalism as they are discernible in contemporary thought on the subject. The Arab peoples of the Middle East and North Africa--inhabiting a constellation of territories stretching from Syria in the north to the Sudan in the south and from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Persian Gulf in the east --include the Syrians, the Lebanese, the Palestinians, the Jordanians, the Egyptians, the Sudanese, the Libyans, the Tunisians, the Algerians, the Moroccans, the Iraqis, the Saudi Arabians, the Yemenites, and the inhabitants of the Persian Gulf sheikhdoms. Most of the seventy million people of these territories regard themselves as Arabs, and in their striving to reconstruct the foundations of their life after centuries of disastrous lethargy they are embracing Arab nationalism as the standard-bearer of their hopes and aspirations for the new order struggling grimly to be born.
