Summary This is an annotated translation of al-Tahtawi's "Takhlis al-Ibriz fi Talkhis Bariz," the first translation of an in-depth Arabic account of a visit to Western Europe by a Muslim from the Near East. In addition to its historical and literary value, the book offers invaluable insight into misconceptions about the continent and the ' other', and the disorientation that follows a descent into a new world. Its ideas and notions are as vibrant and palpable as they were over 150 years ago.
Language notes Translated from the Arabic.
