The recent history of the Arab World presents a dismal story of pain, horror, and suffering. The causes are many and the blame game endless. However, the happy experiences of one Englishman throw a quite contrary light on current events, and have been written down as a way of saying thank you to all the Arabians involved for their unrivalled hospitality and friendship, as well as for sharing so much hilarious merriment. The author has collected stories over the course of many years that highlight not only the essential dottiness of his own country's activities in the area, but also unveil the tremendous humour that the Arabs themselves possess. In this volume these tales are recorded, many for the first time, and have been added to by extensive research into the relevant literature to provide important background material, reference and explanation. To understand the humour of a race or nation is to understand and appreciate their culture and characteristics and reach a common ground. Whatever your nationality, Fibs, Facts and Farces: Tales from the Arab World will have you holding your sides.
