vii 364 pp, frontispiece, photographs, 1 map, index. Reprint of 1930 edition. Hard back binding. Copy in MINT condition. New.

The second of Ameen Rihani'a travel books in concerned, as the title indicates, with the coastal territories of Arabia; to be precise, those of Al-Hijaz, Asir, Kuwait, bahrain, and Aden and the Protectorates. As with the book on Najd, he visits these lands and records his adventures and his impressions of each, supplying the reader with detailed historical background. Each country has its own religious, political and social set-up, though some in evitably overlap. In his close consideration of these the author obviously has the objective of enhacing the west's under-standing of the Arab and the problems he faces in this century.
