5.0 out of 5 stars Dhimmis: Jew Christian in Islam - Muslim, October 15, 2008
This review is from: Israel Oriental Studies: Dhimmis and Others : Jews and Christians and the World of Classical Islam (Mesopotamian Civilizations, 10) (Hardcover)
This hardback is Vol. XVII of the "Israel Oriental Studies" with this 256-page book subtitled: "Dhimmis and Others: Jews and Christians and the World of Classical Islam." It is edited by Uri Rubin and David Wasserstein; and copyright by the Tel-Aviv University in Israel. Its chapters are: "On the words for 'Jew(s)' in Arabic" by Simon Hopkins (18 pgs); "Did Muhammad Conclude Treaties with the Jewish Tribes Nadir, Qurayza and Qaynuqa?" by Michael Lecker (9 pgs); "Les Trois Mensognes d'Abraham Dans la Tradition Interpretante Musulmane" by Claude Gillot (52 pgs, alas--this chapter is in the French language); "Apes, Pigs, and the Islamic Identity" by Uri Rubin (18 pgs); "Sirk and 'Idolatry' in Monotheist Polemic" by Gerald Hawting (20 pgs); "Sahrastani on the Magariyya" by Steven Wasserstrom (30 pgs); "Christian Success and Muslim Fear in Andalusi Writings during the Almoravid and Almohad Periods" by Maribel Fierro (24 pgs); "The Muslims and the Golden Age of the Jews in al-Andalus" by David Wasserstein (18 pgs); "Excerpts from the Abridgment of al-Kitab al-Kati by Abu al-Farag Harun in Arabic Script" by Nasir Basal (20 pgs; in Arabic, Hebrew & English); "Jewish Converts to Islam in the Muslim West" by Mercedes Garcia-Arenal (24 pgs); and two book reviews: "Igor Diakonoff: Archaic Myths of the Orient and the Occident" by Daniel Gershenson (4 pgs); and "J.C.E. Watson: Sbahtu! A Course in San'ani Arabic" by Moshe Piamenta (3 pgs). Hey, lots of scholarly stuff here. {Another reviewer wrote about "Adapa and the South Wind" which apparently is really in Vol. 10 of some other unrelated series, because it isn't in this book.}
