Review

The only sound, comprehensive, and ‘popular’ work in English on the life, times, and people of the Prophet. Kirkus Reviews The best popular life of the Prophet of Islam available in the English language. An extraordinary accomplishment. Los Angeles Times Glubb’s long acquaintance with the Arabs has enabled him to make sense out of obscure legends and to bring long-dead battles to life. His book stings like caravan dust and sweeps forward like a charge of Bedouin cavalry. Newsweek Glubb has written a history that is as fascinating to read as it is immediately and permanently valuable.
