      Brief Description: Philip K. Hitti is one of the world's leading Arabic scholars and authorities on the Near East. His History of the Arabs was acclaimed by Samuel Chew in the New York Herald Tribune as "enthrallingly interesting work..." Now Dr. Hitti has written a brilliant history of the land into which more historical and cultural events, colorful and dynamic, were croweded than perhaps into any area of equal size. For Syria, which first saw the dawn of continuous history, has either invented or transmitted to mankind such benefits as monotheistic religion, philosophy, law, trade, agriculture, and our allphabet.
