Review Text

  • By Donald M. Bishop on July 26, 2015

    In the 1970s and 1980s, graduate students who became serious about the study of the history of the Middle East found this volume extremely useful. This is the revised edition of 1976. (In 1984, a new version appeared as the Middle East Studies Handbook.)It's not a text. For the area of Iran, Egypt, Turkey, the Fertile Crescent, and the Arabian peninsula from AD 570 to 1974, it's a compilation of rulers, dynasties, genealogies, and dates. Is your mind blanking out on the eighth Abbasid caliph? See page 18. How were the Crimean Khans related to Genghis Khan? Page 48. And so on.There's a valuable section on transliterations, a glossary, a conversion table from the Islamic calendar, a chronology, and 31 pages of B&W maps. Much of this information could now be found on the web, but it would take hours and hours of searches to gather all the material. Professor Bacharach's compilation provides all the information in one place where it can be collated and compared. It's a superb resource.-30-
