    Arab history stretches back long before Islamic times; indeed, the Arabs' Phoenician forebears were exploring as far as the coasts of England and West Africa in the early first millennium BCE. Out of Arabia offers a survey of Arab influence on European history and identity, arguing that the arrival of the Arabs in Spain in 711 and the establishment of Mediterranean Emirates should be understood as part of a process going back thousands of years.
