The Assemblies has been regarded for eight centuries as the greatest treasure in Arabic literature after the Koran. It is the inner thread of this amazing book which makes it a world classic: the tales and events mirror the antics of the human mind on its way through life. The last chapter, where the "rascal," after all his experiences, settles down to a devout Sufi life, gives the clue to this fascinating textbook of traditional psychology.
