Stanford Studies in Middle Eastern and Islamic Societies and Cultures

from Stanford University Press

This series explores the social and political conditions that enable various forms of cultural expression in the Middle East—whether Islamic, nationalist, or secular—and the ways in which these forms legitimate regimes and operate as social movements. Books in this series are particularly concerned with the relationships between the new international economy, local states, national and sub-national communities, and local, regional, and transnational forms of culture. With a chronological focus from World War II to the present, this series produces books of cutting-edge scholarship and broad appeal that address the region spanning from Morocco to Pakistan—the zone that constitutes the historic core of the Muslim-majority world.

The Library of Arabic Literature makes available Arabic editions and English translations of significant works of Arabic literature, with an emphasis on the seventh to nineteenth centuries. The Library of Arabic Literature thus includes texts from the pre-Islamic era to the cusp of the modern period, and encompasses a wide range of genres, including poetry, poetics, fiction, religion, philosophy, law, science, travel writing, history, and historiography.Books in the series are edited and translated by internationally recognized scholars. They are published in parallel-text and English-only editions in both print and electronic formats. PDFs of Arabic editions are available for free download from the Library of Arabic Literature website. The Library of Arabic Literature also publishes distinct scholarly editions with critical apparatus and a separate Arabic-only series aimed at young readers.

The series is noted for publishing distinguished and balanced studies of Israel, Palestine, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including contributions by Israeli and Palestinian scholars.
