Title

The Syrian World Vol. 01 no. 01

Description

Vol. 1 No. 01 of The Syrian World, published July 1926. This first issue begins with a foreword by Salloum Mokarzel and a poem by Kahlil Gibran stating the purpose of the journal: to educate both Syrian-Americans and a broader American public about Syrian history, literature and current events; it closes with an editorial policy of political and religious neutrality. The issue focuses on history: in addition to Syrian history, it has articles about the Druze and the relationship between East and West which give context to its reporting on current events, especially the Great Syrian Revolt and the French Mandate. It also includes excerpts from classic Arab literature and proverbs. It closes with calls for subscriptions, translated excerpts from the Arabic-language press, and letters from readers. Throughout, the issue is illustrated by reproductions of photographs by the Brown Brothers of various places in historical Syria (modern-day Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and Israel).
