Most widely held works by E. Denison Ross
Islam: beliefs and institutions by Henri Lammens( Book )
19 editions published between 1926 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 693 libraries worldwide
In this book, originally published in 1929, Lammens is primarily concerned with the problem of Mohammad's personality and prophetic career - one of the central issues of Islamic history. He argues that Mohammad's career must be considered within the context of the urban and mercantile society of seventeenth century Mecca and rejects the idea that Islam was principally the creation of a nomadic environment
The heart of Asia : a history of Russian Turkestan and the Central Asian khanates from the earliest times by Francis Henry Skrine( Book )
46 editions published between 1899 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 376 libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1899, The Heart of Asia is a definitive history of Central Asia from pre-history to the contemporary machinations of the Russian empire. The book is valuable not only because of the quality of the historical work on the early period, but also because of the unique picture that it gives of contemporary views on the potential for Anglo-Russian conflict, at a time when the Russian Empire was Britain's closest rival for Asian hegemony. Scholars of modern Russia and Central Asia will find much that echoes, and indeed drives, more recent events. This edition includes 34 illustrations and two maps."--Jacket
The Persians by E. Denison Ross( Book )
15 editions published in 1931 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 libraries worldwide
Persian pictures by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )
13 editions published between 1928 and 1947 in English and Undetermined and held by 308 libraries worldwide
This brilliant, vivid and impressionistic series of sketches, formed during her 1892 stay in Persia, is Gertrude Bell's first published work. Infused with a distinctive orientalism, "Persian Pictures" is an evocative, virtuosic meditation, moving sinuously between Persia's heroic complex, mythical past and present decline; the public face of Tehran and the otherworldly "secret, mysterious life of the East;" the lives of its women; its enclosed, quasi-medieval gardens; from the bustling cities to the lonely wastelands of Khorasan. Bell's documentation of Muharram--the month of mourning for Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed--and Ramadan, display a mind finely attuned to the differences and similarities between Islam and Christianity, East and West. "Persian Pictures" is both travelog and meditation, an elegaic and beautifully observed account of a spellbinding land.--From publisher description
