This link will take you to the amazon.com page that describes a very interesting and relevant book, The Arab Mind, that my father, cultural anthropologistRaphael Patai, wrote many years ago. It has since been updated and recently published in a new edition, with a new introduction that explains its relevance in the post-9/11 world. Here's the first review I came across on amazon:
D.J. Epright, 12/25/04:
I took this book to Baghdad for my military assignment and left it there with friends who continue to use it to help inform their experiences. The book helped me understand what I was seeing with my own eyes and helped me avoid mis-steps that probably would have been misinterpreted. The book rang true with my experiences and helped me understand the Iraqi people, who I found to be generally good and noble. This books is not the be-all and end-all for Arab cultural understanding, but it seems to be an excellent jumping-off point. Westerners in Iraq "got points" from the Iraqis by merely TRYING to understand their culture. Empathy, compassion and RESPECT go a long way in any culture, and certainly for the Iraqis.
