Summary

In his best-selling Darkest England, Idries Shah asserts that the English hail from a little-known place called "Hathaby", but their roots go back much farther, perhaps to the distant Asian realm of Sakasina. Once a nomadic tribe of warriors, the English fled westward, bringing with them epic tales, traditions, and an Oriental way of thought.

Shah charts the genius of the English in adopting and adapting "almost anything spiritual, moral or material" for their own use - a faculty that has transformed them from warrior nomads into successful diplomats, businessmen, thinkers, and scientists.
