Abstract

The Arab is the latest of the great revolutions of the twentieth century. The Arab people, lost in the backwash of history for centuries, is shaking off fetters, domestic and foreign. The ancient lethargy imposed by sheik and landlord, buttressed in later years by foreign guns and gold, gives way. The Arabs seem again on the verge of an awakening such as carried their banners from Spain to India a thousand years ago and made Baghdad, Damascus, and Cairo world centers of culture.
