Product description

About the Author

Novelist and historian Adel Bishtawi was born in Nazareth, 1945. He read English Literature at Damascus University and attended a course in Linguistics at the Central London Polytechnic. A journalist by career, he was front page editor of Al Arab Newspaper (London), the first pan-Arab newspaper launched in Europe and co-founder of two of the most prestigious Arabic publications - Asharq Al Awsat (London) and Al-Hayat (London). For almost seven years, he was Central Managing Editor of the Emirates News Agency, Abu Dhabi (UAE). Bishtawi's early fiction works included several anthologies of short stories and a novella. The Andalusian Moriscoes: History of the Moriscoes after the fall of Granada was first published in Cairo in 1982. His first novel Traces of a Tattoo was published in 1998; his second? Times of Death and Roses? was published in 1999 and the third? Gardens of Despair? in 2000. Martyrdom of the Andalusian Nation (Part I) was released in 2001. History of Injustice in the Arab World was launched at the Sharjah World Book Fair in December 2005, and Manifest Destiny of Imperial Decline, came out in 2006. Almost obsessed by the origin of things universal, Bishtawi's occupation with the mysterious origin of the Arabic numerals led him to their accidental discovery. The story of his search was documented in the Origin of the Arabic Numerals - A natural history of numbers (AuthorHouse, 2011). This discovery, in turn, led him to the correct identification of the bi-consonantal original roots and the grammatical re-construction of ancient Arabian, believed to be the oldest language still in use today, fully or partially, by more than 1.5 billion people in the four continents. If we believe that etymology is history, as some appear to do, ancient Arabian holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the oldest human civilisation in existence. Some of these secrets were unveiled in volume I of the Book of Origins
