For the first time in English, here is the complete picture of Ameen al-Rihani at his best: poet, writer, philosopher, traveler, diplomat, Arab nationalist, politician, historian, teacher, son, brother, lover, friend, spiritualist, social reformer, and patriot.
From 1896 to 1940 the world was busy corresponding with Ameen al-Rihani. These letters are a biographical testament that allows us to accompany Ameen throughout the better part of his life's journey and see the world as he saw it and also see him and his world through the eyes of a multitude of his contemporaries.
These letters are valid historical documents that shed light on a critical bygone era of our national history, Arab identity, and place on the stage of world affairs. They highlight some of the major events that shaped history and sealed the fate of certain nations at the turn of the twentieth century.
Among the authors of these documents are kings, presidents, sheiks, bishops and government officials. There are world renowned Orientalists, professors, authors, poets, writers, journalists, critics, and historians.
Inside is also an illustrated pilgrimage to al-Rihani's home and museum. (Black and White Edition)
