Saleh, Nabil


"This subtle draught of sherbet is the work of a lawyer practices Islamic law in Beruit and London. It purports to be the text of a leather-bound diary composed in 1843 by Abu Khalid, a qadi or judge, and found in a Beruit wall after the bombardments of 1970....The political climate is one of permanent compromise and the pursuit of the main chance, among the conflicting demands of Ottoman pashas, European consuls, the Druze, Maronite, Orthodox and Catholic sects and the mass of resentful Muslims.Saleh, Nabil is the author of 'Qadi and the Fortune Teller Diary of a Judge in Ottoman Beirut (1843)' with ISBN 9780704380196 and ISBN 0704380196.
