Arabs and Empire before Islam lead image

Arabs and Empire Before Islam gives an excellent overview of the complexity of social, political and religious action in pre-Islamic Arabia….This work will be of use to scholars and graduate students seeking an introduction to pre-Islamic Arabia and will prove especially valuable to those with an interest in ancient borderlands, empires, and people on their fringes.
