The New Spirit in Arab Lands
This analysis of Arab nationalism was the result of the author's work as a journalist in Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Iraq from 1929 to 1931. Katibah explores the definition of "Arab", the sources of Arab nationalism, the "Promises, Betrayals, Failure" of Western-style democratic systems for Arab countries, Zionism compared to Arab nationalism, the trend of liberalism in Islam, women in Islam, the effect of industrial economies on Islamic nations, the problems and cultural assumptions of democracy, and so forth. The text mixes history, philosophy, and international relations analysis.
