In what can only be described as a monumental scholarly achievement, these six volumes provide a sense of the historical, social, and religious ; characteristics of the Middle East that is only barely hinted at by the modest general title: Israel Oriental Studies.
Essays of exceptional importance — ranging from the conversion of Egypt to Islam, Qumran and Iran, Military Society of the Mamluks, Medieval Interpretations of Dreams — are herein included. These are not simply pedagogic exercises, but in their totality strongly indicate the integral and or- : ganic nature of the Middle East — and its Arabic, Jewish, and Christian components.
