Part 2: Nomad And The City

The nomad and the city are the two poles of Islamic civilization, and the tension between them has always been a feature of its life. The nomads bring fresh and unspoiled energies, and the capacity for renewal. The cities provide stability and continuity, and are the home of the arts, crafts and learning. Scenes of nomadic life feature the Berber, Bedouin and Turkoman peoples, and the Bahktiari of Iran. These are contrasted with two cities - Sanas in Yemen, a beautifully preserved example of the early cities of Arabia, and Fez in Morocco, which with its narrow streets, inward-looking houses, and hundreds of busy craftsmen, typifies the more usual type of Islamic city
