This most influential journal of Arab political opinion was created, inspired and sustained by the famous Arab activist, Amir Shakib Arslan. Published in French from Geneva, it was banned from French North Africa in the 1930s, but widely read in Arab and European capitals. La Nation Arabe is a remarkable and important document in the history of Arab-Islamic politics, and a virtually complete set of this rare journal has been assembled from surviving originals. Within its first year, the journal became the spearhead of an international propaganda campaign against the French Berber dahir in Morocco, which La Nation Arabe successfully portrayed as an imperialist attempt to remove the Berbers from the jurisdiction of the shariah. The success of La Nation Arabe in orchestrating the campaign against the Berber dahir brought widespread publicity to the new journal and established its reputation as an effective opponent of European imperialism.
