Gerald Butt, BBC Radio's Middle East Correspondent, explains the workings of the Arab world through the unfolding of events in the 20th century, showing how political, economic and social developments have combined to make the region the way it is today. The book shows how the Arabs have viewed the involvement of foreign powers in the Middle East throughout this century, and explains why there are so many misunderstandings and so much distrust in the relationship between the Arab world and the West. Drawing on history, literature and the views of Arab througout this varied region, as well as the author's own knowledge of the peoples and cultures and his experiences during his many years in the region, this book will help to explain one world to another.
