The states on the south coast of the Persian Gulf were once part of the Ottoman Empire, even if only loosely so. Unfortunately, their history is rarely considered to be closely tied with that of the Ottomans. However, the ‘discovery’ of the Gulf by the Portuguese and the ultimate arrival of the British meant that the body of water would become a point of contact between the two empires. Zekeriya Kursun’s book explores the roots of the Anglo-Ottoman conflict in Qatar. Kursun starts by describing the Ottoman expansion into Qatar and takes the reader through the nineteenth century, when Ottoman control weakened due to British activity and into the twentieth century when Ottoman rule in the Arab world would finally cease. In addition to the main text, Kursun includes a collection of transcribed documents from the Ottoman archives and a selection of historical maps of Qatar.

The Problem of Evil

Ibn Sina's Theodicy
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0654-3
Who of us has not wondered why a God with absolute attributes causes or allows evil in the world? This most puzzling issue, known as the problem of evil, received significant attention from Ibn Sina. In the present work, Dr. Inati argues that Ibn Sina provides seven theses to justify God's causing or allowing the presence of evil, and that only the thesis which relies on God’s omnipotence as defined by Ibn Sina eliminates the problem of evil in his philosophy. The book is an original piece of work and the first comprehensive study of Ibn Sina's Theodicy, which helped shape later Islamic and Christian treatments of the subject and left significant marks on the thought of major medieval philosophers, including Ibn Rushd, Aquinas and Suarez.

A Unique Hebrew Glossary from India

An Analysis of Judeo-Urdu
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0613-0
This is the first-ever study of Judeo-Urdu, that is, the Hindi/Urdu language written in Hebrew script. It provides background and an introduction to the Judeo-Urdu corpus, presents nearly two hundred entries from one text — a Hebrew-Judeo-Urdu glossary — and analyzes the orthography, phonology, and morphology of Judeo-Urdu. Comparison is made to standard Hindi and Urdu, from which Judeo-Urdu diverges in many interesting ways.

The Chronicle of Zuqnīn

Parts I and II. From the Creation to the Year 506/7 AD
Edited and Translated by Amir Harrak
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0663-5
The Chronicle of Zuqnin is a universal history beginning with the Creation according to the biblical account and ending with the time of the Chronicler, the years 775-776 AD. The author is most probably Joshua the Stylite, a contemporary of the Caliphs al-Mansur and al-Mahdi, who lived in the monastery of Zuqnin that was located near Amid, the Diar-Bakr of modern Turkey. Parts I and II contain compiled sources some of which survived only in this Chronicle. Sources include the Bible, Cave of Treasures, the Sleepers of Ephesus, Eusebius of Caesarea, Socrates, and the short Chronicle called Pseudo-Joshua the Stylite that deals with Sassanian-Byzantine warfare at the begging of the 6th century. Parts III and IV cover the years 488 and 775 AD. In this volume, Parts I and II, including the author’s dedicatory letter, are now published in an updated edition of the Syriac text and the first English translation.
