"Ali Baba and the forty Thieves" is one among many stories forming a sequence that lasted 1001 nights.

My review.

Cassim’s threat to his brother, Ali Baba of either he tell him how he got his riches or stand to lose it and be recovered by him shows how willing he is to maintain his status above his brother. ...more
