The Mamluks in Egyptian politics and society( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than half a millenium the Mamluks - military slaves emanating from the steppes of southern Russia and later from the Caucasus and the Balkans - wielded power over Egypt. During this time they formed a remarkable political, military and economic elite, ruling as sovereigns from 1250 to 1517 and, after the Ottoman conquest of Egypt, regaining much of their former paramountcy under Turkish supremacy. In this collection of essays, Ulrich Haarman and Thomas Philipp have brought together the research of some of the most distinguished scholars in the field to provide an accessible and coherent introduction to the structure of political power under the Mamluks and its economic foundations. The essays also offer a unique insight into the Mamluk households and their relationship with the indigenous Egyptian population."

Jurji Zaidan and the foundations of Arab nationalism : a study by Thomas Philipp( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creation of a modern Arabic print language and the secular interpretation of Arab history were among the greatest achievements of the Nahda, the Arab cultural revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The language became an instrument as well as a symbol for the construction of national identity. In contrast to the traditional perception of Arab history as intrinsically part of Islamic history, the Nahda introduced a new vision of Arab history predating and outlasting Islamic civilization. Jurji Zaidan was one of the leading thinkers of the Arab Nahda. Through his historical novels, his widely read journal al-Hilal, which is still published today, and his scholarly works, he forged a new cultural Arab identity. In this book, Philipp shows how Zaidan popularized the idea of society that was based on science and reason, and invoked its accessibility to all who aspired to progress and modernity. In the first section, Philipp traces the arc of Zaidan's career, placing his writings within the political and cultural contexts of the day and analysing his impact on the emerging Arab nationalist movement. The second part consists of a wide selection of Zaidan's articles and book excerpts translated into English. These pieces cover such fields as religion and science, society and ethics, and nationalism. With the addition of a comprehensive bibliography, this volume will be recognized as the authoritative source on Zaidan, as well as an essential contribution to the study of Arabic cultural history

Études sur les villes du Proche-Orient XVIe-XIXe siècles : hommage à André Raymond( )

in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À l'occasion du vingt-cinquième anniversaire de la publication du livre Artisans et commerçants au Caire au XVIIIe siècle, l'Institut Français d'Études Arabes de Damas a entrepris d'organiser, sur une suggestion de 'Abd al-Razzaq Moaz, un colloque rendant hommage à André Raymond, directeur de l'IFEAD de 1966 à 1975. Introduit par une analyse rétrospective d'André Raymond sur son propre travail, le présent ouvrage constitue les Actes de cette manifestation qui s'est déroulée en mai 1999. Les diverses contributions qu'il contient permettent de replacer l'ensemble de l'œuvre de l'auteur dans le contexte général de la mise en place de l'administration ottomane dans les villes arabes, notamment dans le domaine juridique où la présence des juges hanafites et des traducteurs indique la suprématie du pouvoir ottoman. Dans les treize articles de ce recueil, est décrit le fonctionnement de villes telles qu'Alep, Acre, Damas, Alexandrie ou Le Caire. Divers types de sources - archives des tribunaux, plans, chroniques, recensements économiques, annuaires administratifs et commerciaux - sont analysés non seulement dans la perspective de l'histoire politique, de l'histoire économique et sociale mais aussi dans celle de l'histoire culturelle
