This book is a reissue under a new name of the author's "Night, Horses and the Desert", a wonderful anthology of Arabic literature. The book is a compilation of a variety of translations by a number of different translators covering most areas of Classical Arabic literature, with a lot of literary history tying the translations together. I don't know anything better as a detailed intro to Classical Arabic literature.
