India's Forests, Real and Imagined Writing the Modern Nation

Alan Johnson, Idaho State University, USA As they seek to explore evolving and conflicting ideas of nationhood and modernity, India’s writers have often chosen forests as the dramatic setting for stories of national identity. This book explores how these settings have been integral to India's sense of national consciousness. The book casts new light on a wide range of modern writers, from Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay to contemporary authors such as Amitav Ghosh, Arundhati Roy, Salman Rushdie and Jhumpa Lahiri as well as local attitudes to nationhood and the environment across the country.

Covid-19 and Risk Society across the MENA Region Assessing Governance, Democracy and Inequality

Edited by Larbi Sadiki, Qatar University, Qatar & Layla Saleh, Qatar University, Qatar Based on empirical country-level analysis, this volume brings together an international team of contributors seeking to untangle how COVID-19 unfolds in the MENA, with special reference to issues of (self) governance and democracy, and the enormous challenges heightened by the pandemic in Arab settings including inequality, human indignity, and resurgent authoritarianism. The analysis is framed through Ulrich Beck’s famous concept of “risk society” that pinpointed the negative consequences of modernity and its unbridled capitalism. The book traces how this has come home in full force in the COVID-19 pandemic, and uses the term ‘Arab risk society’ to refer to repercussions on Arab societies.

Nationalism, Identity and Diaspora

Tasnim Qutait, Uppsala University, Sweden Interweaving theories and studies of memory, nostalgia, ruins and archives with the works of Fadia Faqir, Ahdaf Soueif, Jamal Mahioub and others, in this book Tasnim Qutait sheds light on understudied Arab British writers. Arguing that nostalgia challenges nationalist and political ideologies rather than reiterating them, Qutait uses nostalgia as a concept interlinking loss, memory and trauma. Anlysing both Arabic and English language texts, she questions the binary of negative and positive forms of nostalgia, emerging from its etymology as a sickness in Western tradition, through invoking the multifarious strands related to nostalgic emotion in Arab traditions.

History of the Arab Invasions: The Conquest of the Lands

A New Translation of al-Baladhuri's Futuh al-Buldan Ahmad b. Yahya al-Baladhuri Translated by Hugh Kennedy, SOAS, University of London, UK This is perhaps the most important single source for the history of the great Arab conquests in the 6th and 7th centuries. A historian working at the court of the Abbasid caliphs in Baghdad, al-Baladhuri preserved accounts not found anywhere else, containing a wealth of information about government, land-holding and economic developments. This new translation, fully annotated with a scholarly apparatus and commentary on places, events and individuals mentioned, finally makes a key source on the Arab conquests available in English.

Sasanian Persia

Baghdad and Isfahan

Touraj Daryaee, University of California, Irvine, USA

Elaheh Kheirandish, Harvard University, USA

The Rise and Fall of an Empire

A Dialogue of Two Cities in an Age of Science CA. 750-1750

Of profound importance in late antiquity, the Sasanian Empire is virtually unknown today, except as a counterpoint to the Roman Empire. The last of the great ancient Persian empires and founded by Ardashir l in 224 CE, the Sasanian Empire was the dominant force in the Middle East for several centuries until its last king, Yazdgerd lll, was defeated by the Muslim Arabs in the seventh century. In this highly readable history, Touraj Daryaee fills a significant gap in our knowledge of world history. This second edition examines the Sasanians' complex and colourful narrative and demonstrates their unique significance, not only for the development of Iranian civilization but also for Roman and Islamic history.

Charting the history of Baghdad and Isfahan from 750 to 1750, Elaheh Kheirandish draws on the voices of court astronomers, mathematicians, scientists, mystics, jurists, statesmen and Arabic and Persian translators and scholars. Telling the story of the rise of Baghdad and the decline of Isfahan, as capital cities and as centres of intellectual thought, this unique book addresses Islamic culture’s extensive and lasting contribution to the history of science. Kheirandish bases her narrative on a unique medieval manuscript and other historical sources and the result is more than a thousand-year “tale of two cities”—it is a city by city, and century by century, look at what it took to change the world.

Music and Musicians in the Medieval Islamicate World

Politics and Government in Byzantium

Lisa Nielson, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA

Jonathan Shea, The George Washington University, USA

A Social History

M I D D L E E A S T S T U D I E S - I . B . T A U R I S – Middle Eastern Literature & History

Nostalgia in Anglophone Arab Literature

The Rise and Fall of the Bureaucrats

Lisa Nielson here presents a rich social and cultural history of music, musicianship and musicians in the early Islamic world. Focusing on Damascus, Baghdad and Jerusalem, she draws on a wide variety of textual sources written for or about musicians– including chronicles, literary sources, memoirs and musical treatises – as well as the disciplinary approaches of musicology to offer insights into musical performances and the lives of musicians. In the process, the book sheds light onto the dynamics of medieval Islamic courts, as well as slavery, gender, status and identity in courtly life. It will appeal to scholars of the Islamic world and historical musicologists.

The contemporary accounts of the turbulent ‘long’ eleventh century attribute the Byzantine empire’s decline to the emperors’ reckless and self-serving favouring of civilian bureaucrats. Jonathan Shea has meticulously analysed 2,200 unpublished seals from the period, crucial archival sources which uncover exactly whom the emperors were favouring and promoting, developing a nuanced and revealing picture of the makeup of the much-chastised civilian bureaucracy. The sigillographic evidence is measured throughout against the written material to give a fresh account of this key transitional century and a rare insight into Byzantine politics.

New Order in the Gulf The Rise of the UAE

Dina Esfandiary, Harvard University, USA This book asesses the UAE’s increasing power and the future challenges to security it poses. Dina Esfandiary argues that the UAE has become more assertive in the pursuit of its own interests in the region and beyond - even when this puts it at odds with its regional allies. The book examines the regional causes of the UAE’s growing assertiveness - especially the 2011 Arab Uprisings – as well as the international context such as the impact of the USannounced ‘Pivot to Asia’, the perceptions of waning US power in the Middle East, and the 2015 nuclear deal.

Russia and the GCC

The Case of Tatarstan’s Paradiplomacy Diana Galeeva, University of Oxford, UK This book examines the relations between the Gulf States and Russia from the Soviet era to the present day. Using the Republic of Tatarstan, one of Russia’s autonomous Muslim polities as a case study, Galeeva demonstrates the emergence of relations between modern Tatarstan and the GCC States. Having conducted fieldwork in the Muslim Republics of Tatarstan, Bashkortostan and Dagestan, the book includes interviews with high-ranking political figures, heads of religious organisations and academics. Moving beyond solely economic and geopolitical considerations, the research in this book sheds light on the increasingly important role, culture and shared Islamic identity play in paradiplomacy efforts.

Iranian-Saudi Rivalry since 1979 In the Words of Kings and Clerics

Talal Mohammad, University of Oxford, UK This book examines Saudi-Iranian rivalry through the lens of discourse analysis. It tracks how each country represents ‘the Other’ in their official statements, media and sermons. The author, fluent in both Arabic and Persian, provides original insights by examining in parallel how the process of Othering functions in the pursuit of their political rivalry and religious conflict. Looking at speeches and pronouncements of the political elites, state-sponsored media and leading clerics in both countries since 1979, it explores the tropes and narratives adopted by each to (mis) represent the Other and identifies a pattern of power plays and mutual provocations.

Peaceful Jihad

The Islamic Civil Rights Movement in Saudi Arabia Peter Enz-Harlass, Austrian Ministry of Defence, Austria In Saudi Arabia, an Islamic civil rights movement, ‘HASM’, has called for the protection of the citizens’ basic rights and demanded political reforms. This book is the first to study human rights in the kingdom from the perspective of these prominent Saudi civil rights activists, uncovering the actual ideas that motivate their activism. Based on detailed discourse analysis of the group’s texts, the book elucidates HASM’s complex contribution to Islamic discourse and their idea of “peaceful civil jihad” that protects citizens’ basic rights within a rigid, Salafist interpretation of social affairs. Sources are included in both Arabic and English.

Media and Power in Modern Iran

Mass Communication, Ideology, and the State E.L. Blout, American University, USA How does a regime that derived its hegemony from the ability to mass-communicate its ideology protect its ideological dominance in an environment characterized by “disruptive power” and “mass self-communication”? What is the role of media in the construction of political power in Iran? This book examines the media institutions, policies, and discourses of Pahlavi and the Islamic Republic of Iran over the course of more than five decades and several communication paradigms. Drawing from over 300 primary sources in Persian and English, including never before used documents from archives in Iran and the United States, it offers a history of Iranian media institutions and strategies from Iran’s first encounter with mass communication in the 1940s, to the dawn of digital media in the 1990s, to internet and mobile telephony today.

Representing Iran in East Germany

Ideology and the Media in the German Democratic Republic Edgar Klüsener Economic and political relations with Iran were a primary concern for the German Democratic Republic leadership and they dominated the GDR's press. This is the first book to analyse the representation of Iran in the media, from the GDR’s formation in 1949 until 1989, the last complete year before its demise. The book explores the use of the press as a tool for ideological education and propaganda. It also examines how the state’s official Marxist-Leninist ideology, the GDR’s international competition with West Germany, and cultural prejudices and stereotypes impacted reporting so powerfully.

Palestine in the Victorian Age

Tahrir Hamdi, Arab Open University, Jordan

Gabriel Polley, University of Exeter, UK

Cultures of Exile and National Identity

Colonial Encounters in the Holy Land

This book explores the ways that Palestinian intellectuals, artists, activists and ordinary citizens ‘imagine’ their homeland, examining the works of key Palestinian thinkers and writers such as Edward Said, Mahmoud Darwish, Mourid Barghouti, Ghassan Kanafani and Naji Al Ali. Deploying Benedict Anderson’s notion of ‘Imagined Communities’ and Edward Soja’s theory of ‘Third Space’, Tahrir Hamdi argues that the imaginative construction of Palestine is a key element in the Palestinians’ ongoing struggle. An interdisciplinary work drawing upon critical theory, postcolonial studies and literary analysis, the book will be of interest to students and scholars of Palestine and Middle East studies and Arabic literature.

This book, the product of historical research among almost forgotten travelogues, guidebooks, archives and newspaper clippings, reveals a previously unwritten chapter in the story of Britain’s pursuit of empire in the nineteenth century Middle East. From the American Bible scholar who started a craze, travellers trying to overturn Jerusalem’s holiest sites, to an English farm outside the city’s walls, to an uprising sparked by a church bell and a contested tragedy, to one Palestinian’s eventful visit to the heart of the British Empire, to the colonies founded by a bizarre eccentric, it reveals an often surprising story of Britain’s growing entanglement with Palestine years before the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and Britain’s occupation of the region .

Dalit Theology, Boundary Crossings and Liberation in India A Biblical and Postcolonial Study

Jobymon Skaria, The Malankara Syrian Orthodox Theological Seminary, India Here an Indian St Thomas Christian Scholar, offers a critique of Indian Christian theology and suggests that constructive dialogues between biblical and dissenting Dalit voices – such as Chokhamela, Karmamela, Ravidas, Kabir, Nandanar and Narayana Guru – could set right the imbalance within Dalit theology, and could establish dialogical partnerships between Dalit Theologians, non-Dalit Christians and Syrian Christians. Drawing on Biblical and socio-historical resources, this book examines worldviews which would empower the Dalits in their everyday existences.

Religious Reform in the Late Ottoman Empire Institutional Change and the Professionalisation of the Ulema

Erhan Bektas, Üsküdar University, Turkey Drawing upon Ottoman state archives and the institutional archives of the ulema, this study challenges the narrative of the decline of the Ottoman ulema, showing they instead underwent a process of professionalisation as part of the Tanzimat reforms. Outlining transformations in the office of the Sheikh ul-islam, the leading Ottoman Sunni Muslim cleric, the book presents a detailed portrait of the lives of individual ulema, charting their education and professional and social lives. Erhan Bektas shows they played a key role in the empire’s efforts to centralise the state by acting as intermediaries between the government and social groups.

The Politics of the Female Body in Contemporary Turkey Reproduction, Maternity, Sexuality

Edited by Hilal Alkan, Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO), Germany, Ayse Dayi, University of Lausanne, Switzerland, Sezin Topçu, National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France & Betül Yarar, University of Bremen, Germany Under the leadership of the Justice and Development Party in Turkey came new regulations about reproductive rights, family and gender policies. Women’s central role in reproductive and domestic work was swiftly reaffirmed as a state. Taking Turkey as the case study, this is the first book to examine the various ways in which neoliberal modes of governing women’s bodies come together with conservative and authoritarian measures. There is a particular focus on issues surrounding reproduction, maternity and sexuality and the impact of patriarchal conceptions of religious morality.

Moral Crisis in the Ottoman Empire

Society, Politics, and Gender during WWI Çigdem Oguz, University of Bologna, Italy To what extent did a perceived morality crisis play a role in the dramatic events of the last years of the Ottoman Empire? This book shows that during the course of World War I many of the empire's social, economic, and political problems were translated into a discourse of moral decline. This made morality a contested space between the rival ideologies, identities, and intellectual currents of the period. Examining the primary journals and printed sources that represented the various constituencies of the period, this book fills important gaps in the scholarship of the Ottoman experience of World War I and the origins of Islamism and secularism in Turkey.

Britain and the Regency of Tripoli Consuls and Empire-Building in Nineteenth-Century North Africa Sara M. ElGaddari Using the National Archive records of correspondence of the British consuls and diplomats from 1795 to 1832, and within the context of the wider Eastern Question, this book reconstructs the the Anglo-Tripolitanian relationship and argues that the Regency of Tripoli played a vital role in Britain’s imperial strategy during and after the Napoleonic Wars. Moreover, it contends that the activities of British consuls in Tripoli, and the networks they fostered around themselves, reshaped the nature and extent of British imperial activity in the region.

Violence in Early Islam

Religious Narratives, the Arab Conquests and the Canonization of Jihad Marco Demichelis, University of Navarra, Spain Deploying an interdisciplinary approach which combines the hermeneutical study of the early hadiths and the famous ‘Verses of the Sword’ within the Qur’an itself, with historical writing by Islamic and non-Islamic contemporary sources, numismatics, epigraphical and architectural evidence, this book questions the relationship between the religious concept of jihad and the conquests. It argues that Christian Arabs who previously fought against the Persians may have had a formative effect on the later emergence of more bellicose rhetoric, rather than any inherent warlike attitudes within Islamic doctrine, and reveals a more nuanced and complicated history of religious violence in the early Islamic period.

Cross-dressing in Turkish Cinema Politics, Gender and National Trauma Burcu Dabak, Yasar University, Turkey As in western cinema, cross-dressing is a recurrent theme in Turkish film. But what do these films, whose characters typically cross-dress in order to escape enemies or other threats, tell us about the modern history of the Turkish Republic? This book examines cross-dressing in Turkish films in the context of formative events in modern Turkish political history, arguing that this trope coincides with trauma induced by Turkey's multiple coup d'etats, periods of authoritarianism, enforced secularism and 'modernization'. It examines five case study films and the concept of cross-dressing in modern Turkey by examining what the author argues is a formative trauma worked through in the films examined: the westernization policies of the Kemalist regime whose most immediate symbolic presence was worn - the enforced adoption of western dress by citizens.

Women Resisting Sexual Violence and the Egyptian Revolution Arab Feminist Testimonies

Manal Hamzeh, New Mexico State University, USA Centered on the testimonies of four women who each played a significant role in the protests, this book provides unique insight into women’s experiences during the Egyptian Revolution, and into the methods of resistance these women developed in response to sexual violence. In the process, Hamzeh casts new light on the relationship between gendered and state violence, and argues that women’s resistance to this violence is reshaping gender relations in Egypt and the wider Arab world.
