Since it was first published in 1949, The Arab of the Desert has become the standard authority on the manners and customs of the nomadic badawin of Arabia before the advent of the oil age. The author H.R.P. Dickson spent many years of his life among them, mostly in Kuwait, and it became his consuming interest to record everything about them, down to the smallest detail of daily routine in the black tents.
