"In the Koran, the first thing God said to Muhammad was ’Read.’"* --Alia Muhammad BakerAlia Muhammad Baker is the librarian of Basra. For fourteen years, her office has been a meeting place for those who love books--until now. Now war has come, and Alia fears the library will be destroyed.

It is, therefore, by focussing attention on problems and controversies associated with Aristotel
