Review Quotes
' Au total, l'Agriculture nabatéene , après avoir été longtemps méprisé, se révèle comme un ouvrage d'importance majeure qui apporte des informations précises, variées non seulement sur les techniques agricoles mais sur les principaux aspects des techniques agraires. L'ouvrage de M. El Faïz est à la hauteur de ce monument. Il reste à espérer que l'Agriculture nabatéenne trouve un traducteur. Il ne fait pas de doute qu'il mérite pleinement.'Georges Tate, Histoire Rurale, 1996.
