Although the Western vision of the Arab world is skewed by contemporary political news, Arabia is a land with a rich tradition of enlightenment, an ancient and vibrant society, and a past and present entwined with the cultural roots of the West. In this companion volume to the documentary film Arabia 3D, panoramic color photos, up to 24 inches across, depict such marvels as the ancient tombs of Petra and new cities springing up on manmade islands. The book introduces readers to the rich tapestry of Arabian life, including the hajj, where three million Muslims descend upon Mecca in the largest single human gathering on earth; the Red Sea, where searches for ancient shipwrecks provide clues to the past; and such everyday traditions as a henna party celebrating a new bride-to-be.

"The author makes a strong case for appreciating the contributions made by the Middle East to world culture ... and heaps praise on the region's discoveries in medicine, mathematics, and human anatomy. The gorgeous photography of mosques, terrain, people, and desert shadow lands is worth the price of admission alone."Publishers Weekly
