From the inside covers:

Come, return to the land of Exdous for Leon Uris' most dramatic and spellbinding novel - The Haj

Haj Ibrahim, Arab ruler of the ancient village of Tabah. He was cheated by his leaders, betrayed by his family, driven into exile by his brethren. In a world where revenge is sacred and hated noble, he dared to speak the truth they would not hear, to see the enemy they could not face. He tried to save his people from destruction, but he could not save them from themselves. And in the end, among all his enemies, he could find only one friend - a Jew.

It was a time when violence spread like a plague across the lands of Palastine.

Haj Ibrahim - His wives feared him, his children rebelled against him, his people revered him.. until he dared to see the truth of an unholy war and speak out to save his own nation.

Gideon Asch - He was the enemy, a Jew, Ibrahim's only friend, a man committed to building a land based on brotherhood and peace - even if he had to fight to the death.

Ishmael - The brilliant son of the Haj, he looked deep into the Arab heart and understood that in a world dominated by fear, hate and greed - hope and love were the first to die.

Nada - The Haj's beautiful daughter, she blazed with a passion to escape from an existence ruled by men. She was determined to defy them all, to break out of slavery to a freedon she hungered to taste.

Farouk - He lived a life of easy corruption, until fate and simmering envy drove him to bring down the world of his brother, the Haj.
