Arab World. Political and Diplomatic History 1900-1967: A Chronological Study. A Descriptive Brochure.
The brochure contains descriptive introductory material on the first of seven volumes covering the Arab world. Five volumes are devoted to a chronology of events throughout the Arab world (including Arab-Israel relations) from 1900 up to 1967. The last two volumes contain a keyword index to the events. The project contributes to the Middle Eastern Studies and also serves as a model project to scholars and students concerned with research of other world areas. The first half of the brochure, arranged in five parts, includes: 1) a description of the project background, problem, purpose, scope, organization, research facilities, and progress information; 2) information on use of the computer to promote new techniques for handling, restoring, and disseminating data concerning the Arab world; 3) useful data on the Arab world; 4) abbreviations used in indices; and 5) acknowledgements. Over half of the pamphlet furnishes sample chronology and index pages. (SJM)
