Abstract:

"Al-Jawf on Arabia's northern desert frontier - an area hitherto neglected by historians - is brought vividly to life for the first time in this far-reaching survey of its historical, cultural and archaeological significance. Written by one of the most important figures in the region's recent history, the book is a valuable addition to the historical literature of Saudi Arabia." "The author tracks the history of al-Jawf from the 9th century BC to the present day, through the reign of Assyrian King Shalmaneser III to the region's growth as a centre of commerce, culture and religion before the rise of Islam and during the Nabataean dominance in northwest Arabia. Dr Geoffrey King, Senior Lecturer in Islamic Art and Archaeology, School of Oriental and African Studies, London University, adds an authoritative account of Dumat al-Jandal - the historical town of al-Jawf - between the first and seventh centuries."--Jacket.
