A London-based writer of fiction and non-fiction, Jones spent time as a child in Morocco and has often visited and studied the Middle East during his career. This is his attempt to come to grips with the violence that characterizes the Arab and Muslim world. He attributes it to the absolutism of the political order, suggesting that absolute power corrupts absolutely everywhere, not just in England. His topics include tribal society and its legacy, power challenging and careerism, the Turkish example, colonialism, the impact of communism, Arabia and oil, the issue of Palestine, and image and identity. The 1989 edition was published by Harper and Row. Jones adds a new preface to this edition. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
