Emile Bustani was born into a poor Lebanese family in 1907, in the twilight years of the Ottoman Empire. When he died in an airplane crash in 1963, he was one of the most influential businessmen and philanthropists in the Middle East and a leading figure in the politics of the region. Emile Bustani looked less to the glories of an Arab past than to the possibilities of a dynamic Arab Renaissance. 216pp, over 500g. reviewer says >>> This is a great start to understand Arab Nationalism and the events that have produced the middle east political scene as we know it now and have in the 19th and 20th century.
