The role indigo has played elsewhere has been fairly well documented, but in the case of the Arab world, little or no thorough investigation has been previously undertaken. Sets out to provide comprehensive coverage of the subject from its earliest history to the present day.

I'm the 1st reviewer because nobody can read this because they're so caught up with their copyright.
The internet and digitized information storage offers a horn of plenty from which we can grasp
all the world's knowledge, but we keep it under lock and key for... what reason?
Jet-setting authors who are pissed that we're taking dollars out of their pockets by not buying their books should join the ranks of postal employees decrying the downward trend in physical mail.
