"A major contribution not only to the regrettably small library of works devoted to the career of Jurji Zaidan, but also an important addition to the rapidly developing collection of careful studies that re-examine the parameters of the nineteenthcentury cultural movement known by the Arabic term ‘al-nahdah,’ best translated as ‘revival.’ "—Roger Allen, author of An Introduction to Arabic Literature

"As a popular science writer, author of many well-known novels, and part of a generation of Arab public moralists that came of age in the late nineteenth century, Zaidan offers a unique case study of the life and times of an Ottoman intellectual and Arabic populizer."—Marwa Elshakry, associate professor of history, Columbia University
