Hagarism : the making of the Islamic world by Patricia Crone( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By examining non-Muslim sources, the authors point out the intimate link between the Jewish religion and the earliest forms of Islam."--Description provided by publisher
Meccan trade and the rise of Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

28 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patricia Crone reassesses one of the most widely accepted dogmas in contemporary accounts of the beginnings of Islam, the supposition that Mecca was a trading center thriving on the export of aromatic spices to the Mediterranean. Pointing out that the conventional opinion is based on classical accounts of the trade between south Arabia and the Mediterranean some 600 years earlier than the age of Muhammad, Dr. Crone argues that the land route described in these records was short-lived and that the Muslim sources make no mention of such goods. In addition to changing our view of the role of trade, the author reexamines the evidence for the religious status of pre-Islamic Mecca and seeks to elucidate the nature of the sources on which we should reconstruct our picture of the birth of the new religion in Arabia."
Pre-industrial societies by Patricia Crone( Book )

41 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, historian Patricia Crone offers a blueprint for a world now lost, outlining the common features of Islamic, Indian, Chinese and pre-Medieval European societies. The book concentrates on such issues as the role of politics and religion; how communities developed social hierarchies; and the relationship between the individual and the state. Crone provides a lively and accessible explanation of how human society was organized in the 5000 years prior to the Industrial Revolution
God's rule : government and Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to examine the medieval Muslim answers to questions crucial to any Western understanding of Middle Eastern politics today, such as why states are necessary, what functions they are meant to fulfill, and whether or why they must be based on religious law." "Crone makes Islamic political thought accessible by relating it to the contexts in which it was formulated, analyzing it in terms familiar to today's reader and, where possible, comparing it with both medieval European and later political thought. By examining the ideological point of departure for medieval Islamic political thought, Crone provides an invaluable foundation for a better understanding of contemporary Middle Eastern politics and current world events."--Jacket
God's caliph : religious authority in the first centuries of Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new study examines how religious authority was distributed in early Islam. It argues the case that, as in Shi'ism, it was concentrated in the head of state, rather than dispersed among learned laymen as in Sunnism. Originally the caliph was both head of state and ultimate source of religious law; the Sunni pattern represents the outcome of a conflict between the caliph and early scholars who, as spokesmen of the community, assumed religious leadership for themselves. Many Islamicists have assumed the Shi'ite concept of the imamate to be a deviant development. In contrast, this book argues that it is an archaism preserving the concept of religious authority with which all Muslims began."
The Princeton encyclopedia of Islamic political thought( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2012, the year 1433 of the Muslim calendar, the Islamic population throughout the world was estimated at approximately a billion and a half, representing about one-fifth of humanity. In geographical terms, Islam occupies the center of the world, stretching like a big belt across the globe from east to west."--Page vii
Slaves on horses : the evolution of the Islamic polity by Patricia Crone( Book )

22 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slave soldiers are a distinctively Muslim phenomenon. Though virtually unknown in the non-Muslim world, they have been a constant and pervasive feature of the Muslim Middle East from the ninth century AD into modern times. Why did Muslim rulers choose to place military and political power in the hands of imported slaves? It is this question which Dr Crone seeks to answer. Concentrating on the period from the rise of the Umayyads to the dissolution of the 'Abbasid empire (roughly AD 650-850), she documents the consequences of the fusion between religion and politics in Islam, which she sees as an essential forging characteristic of the Muslim social structure and state. Primarily addressed to specialists and advanced students of Arabic and Islamic history, the book will also appeal to comparative historians and social anthropologists
Roman, provincial, and Islamic law : the origins of the Islamic patronate by Patricia Crone( Book )

21 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the cultural origins of Islamic law. Some authorities stress the importance of the contribution of Roman law; others that of Arabian law. Most are agreed that Jewish law contributed, but not explained further. Dr Crone tests the Roman hypothesis with reference to one institution, the patronate, which does indeed appear to owe something to Roman law. He concludes that Roman law contributed only in so far as it was part and parcel of the rather different legal practice of the Near Eastern provinces, and that provincial law would repay further consideration by legal historians

24 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Multiple languages and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Epistle of Salim ibn Dhakwān by Sālim ibn Dhakwān( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Arabic and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The epistle ascribed to Salim Ibn Dhakwan is a tract against 'wrong' doctrines regarding the classification and treatment of opponents. Written by an Ibadi before AD 800 and taking issue with both Kharijite extremists and Murji'ites, it was brought to the attention of Western Islamicists in the early 1970s by Amr Khalifa Ennami, and is here edited, translated, and discussed in full for the first time." "The early centuries of Islamic religious thought have become a dynamic field in the last few years, and there is renewed interest in the attempt to use the early literature of the Muslim sects as windows onto the wider scene of doctrinal discussion in the period before the mainstream tradition becomes plentiful. In addition to making available a new source, this study seeks to open up the Ibadi tradition for future research on early Islamic thought, partly by making heavy use of Ibadi sources in its interpretation of Salim's epistle and partly by offering systematic information about the Ibadi figures and literary works involved in the Appendices and Bibliography."--Jacket
