    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a welcome addition to the limited pool of textbooks that can be used to teach modern standard Arabic in general and advanced Arabic in particular. The work seems to be a result of great efforts by the authors based on their personal experiences teaching the language in academic institutions...The topic-based selection of texts makes it very attractive" Religious Studies Review
