Anyone know if the book has been translated to Arabic? There is a large appetite and motivation for the reasoned trouncing Said got in this book among those with the ambition to get out of any predominantly Muslim nation (even if the nation's government claims it is a secular state), but whose English language skills are currently insufficient. I hope it will be available as an audio file/book for the people on this continent who prefer to listen and speak rather than read, because the general view that the East is our victim is pervasive.
