In The Arab Thieves, Peter Webb critically explores the classic tales of pre-Islamic Arabian outlaws in Arabic Literature.A group of Arabian camel-rustlers became celebrated figures in Muslim memories of pre-Islam, and much poetry ascribed to them and stories about their escapades grew into an outlaw tradition cited across Arabic literature.

The name Persia comes from Aryan and is additionally mentioned within the ancient book of the Zoroastrians, which was referre.

This is a collection from five stories out of “Kalila and Dimna,” a famous book of Arab fables. Monkeys and crocodiles are friends, until jealous wives come between them. The stories are fun, read in clear Modern Standard Arabic with all the إعراب (grammatical case endings), and each about five minutes long. Unique in post-September 11 America, Tales From Arab Detroit, is an intimate community portrait.A visiting Egyptian storyteller/bard provokes an inquiry into issues of Arab heritage and tradition in a quintessential American immigrant community.

  It is natural to read Tales from Arab Lands for insight into Jewish and Arab cultures or for a sense of connection with this part of the Jewish past; and the stories do yield some historical. I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to get the 'Story book' that comes with the 'Tales of the Arabian Nights' board game in an electronic (pdf) format? I'm happy to pay for it, but I just can't seem to find one. 9 comments. share. save hide report. 68% Upvoted.
