Abstract
The main focus of this book is to demonstrate how Samuel Johnson's 'Irene, Rasselas' and his other Oriental tales share, with previous Oriental writings, a common focus on Islam, Arabs, their culture, and political systems. His assessments of and observations on Islam and Arab cultures show that he looked at them less objectively.
