The London Times has a long, quite positive review of the new English edition of the Arabian Nights (posted on earlier). It includes a good history the Nights' various translations and publications and discusses the stylistic choices made in this last edition in some detail.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
The Arabist is a labor of love. We don't make much from ads, so please contribute to keep us going.
