The Arabs is widely considered one of the essential books for understanding the Middle East and the peoples who live there. David Lamb, who spent years as a correspondent in Cairo, explores the Arabs’ religious, political, and cultural views, noting the differences and key similarities between the many segments of the Arab world. He explains Arab attitudes and actions toward the West, including the growth of terrorism, and situates current events in a larger historical backdrop that goes back more than a thousand years. Now thoroughly revised and updated, The Arabs takes the story up to 2001. Lamb analyzes the developments that led to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and helps the reader to understand how things got to that point. A veteran journalist, Lamb combines his extensive experience in covering international politics with his deeply informed insider’s knowledge to provide an intimate portrait of the Arab world today.

David Sherman Lamb was born in Boston, Massachusetts on March 5, 1940. He began his journalism career at 14, when he wrote a weekly column for The Milwaukee Journal about the Braves leaving Boston for Milwaukee from the perspective of a teenager. He graduated from the School of Journalism at the University of Maine in 1962. He worked for The Okinawa Morning Star and United Press International before joining The Los Angeles Times. He left the paper in 2004 after 34 years. His first book, The Africans, was published in 1983. His other books included The Arabs, Stolen Season: A Journey Through America and Baseball's Minor Leagues, Over the Hills: A Midlife Escape Across America by Bicycle, and Vietnam, Now: A Reporter Returns. He also worked on the PBS documentary Vietnam Passage: Journeys from War to Peace in 2002. He died from lymphoma and esophageal cancer on June 5, 2016 at the age of 76.
