To commemorate the 100th anniversary of 'Abbas Effendi's visits to Egypt, a book was authored and released by Professor Suheil Badi Bushrui, a distinguished author, poet, critic, translator, and media personality who is well known in the United States, the Middle East, India, Africa, and the Arab world. Presently, Bushrui was the first incumbent of CIDCM's (Center for International Development and Conflict Management) Bahá'ì Chair for World Peace at the University of Maryland, a position to which he was appointed from 1992 to 2005. He is the founder and current Director of University of Maryland's Kahlil Gibran Research and Studies Project. Well known for his seminal studies in English of the works of W.B. Yeats and for his translations of Yeats' poetry into Arabic, Bushrui is also the foremost authority on the works of Kahlil Gibran. Of note, the author's father, the late Mirza Badi Bushrui who was a resident of Alexandria, had spent much of his childhood and youth years in the home of 'Abbas Effendi in Palestine.
In order to accurately document the historical events during these momentous times, the book, authored in Arabic, was extensively researched and meticulously written by Professor Bushrui. A permission to publish the electronic version of the book was granted by the publisher (© Al-Kamel Verlag 2011) and can be viewed and downloaded in its entirety at the following links:
