About

Overview

Many Westerners are unaware of the diversity of language and art across the Middle East. Arabic dialects differ based on region and country, and many other Semitic and non-Semitic languages are spoken across the Middle East. Art and technology also develop based on distinct cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic influences. This book examines art, technology, and language on a per-country basis to show students the richness and diversity of culture across the region.
