The Hispano Portuguese Empire And Its Contacts With Safavid Persia The Kingdom Of Hormuz And Yarubid Oman From 1489 To 1720

by Willem M. Floor, The Hispano Portuguese Empire And Its Contacts With Safavid Persia The Kingdom Of Hormuz And Yarubid Oman From 1489 To 1720 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Hispano Portuguese Empire And Its Contacts With Safavid Persia The Kingdom Of Hormuz And Yarubid Oman From 1489 To 1720 books, Given the important role that the Portuguese played in the Persian Gulf from 1507 to 1720, knowing what is available about their activities in this area is not only of importance to those interested in the history of Portugal, but also of those interested in the history of Bahrein, Iran, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, eastern Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. This bibliography of printed published works therefore contains a full list of primary and secondary sources, not only in Western languages, but also in Persian, Arabic and Turkish. It aims to facilitate the work of scholars and students, but also of the non-specialist, i.e. those among the general public who want to know more about this part of the world during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and about the activities of the Portuguese. Although other bibliographies exist that include the activities of the Portuguese in the Persian Gulf, all are in need of updating, and none are as comprehensive as this bibliography.

In Good Faith

by Claire M. Gilbert, In Good Faith Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download In Good Faith books, The century that followed the fall of Granada at the end of 1491 and the subsequent consolidation of Christian power over the Iberian Peninsula was marked by the introduction of anti-Arabic legislation and the development of hostile cultural norms affecting Arabic speakers. Yet as Spanish institutions of power first restricted and then eliminated Arabic language use, marginalizing Arabic-speaking communities, officially sanctioned translation to and from Arabic played an increasingly crucial role in brokering the administration of the growing Spanish empire and its overseas territories. The move on the peninsula from a regime of legal pluralism to one of religious and legal orthodoxy created new needs and institutions for Arabic translation, which simultaneously reflected, subverted, and ultimately reaffirmed the normative anti-Arabic language politics. In Good Faith examines the administrative functions and practices of the individual translators who walked the knife's edge, as the task of the Arabic-Spanish translator became both more perilous and more coveted during a volatile historical period. Despite the myriad personal and political risks run by Arabic speakers, Claire M. Gilbert argues that Arabic translation was at the core of early modern Spanish culture and society and that translators played pivotal roles in the administrative, institutional, and ideological development of Spain and its relationships, both domestic and international. Using materials from state, local, and religious archives, Gilbert develops the notion of "fiduciary translation" and uses it to paint a vivid picture of the techniques by which translators attempted to demonstrate their expertise and trustworthiness—thereby to help protect themselves, their families, and even their communities from the Inquisition and other authorities. By emphasizing the practices and networks of the individual translators themselves, Gilbert's social history of Arabic translation deepens our understanding of religious minorities, international relations, and statecraft in early modern Spain.

The Politics And Security Of The Gulf

by Jeffrey R. Macris, The Politics And Security Of The Gulf Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Politics And Security Of The Gulf books, Since the 19th century the Gulf region has been an area of intense interest, having been influenced first by the British and more recently by the Americans. This book charts the changing security and political priorities of these two powers and how they have shaped the region. Adopting a narrative approach, the author provides background history on British involvement from the 19th century and a detailed analysis of the years after the Second World War, when oil supply became more critical. He covers the growth of US influence and the British withdrawal, and follows more recent changes as the US built up its military presence following Desert Storm and the invasion of Iraq. Looking at the three enduring missions fulfilled by the British - maintaining interstate order, protecting the free flow of commerce, which later included petroleum; and keeping out other Great Powers – the book demonstrates how these had by 1991 been assumed almost entirely by the American leaders. A comprehensive and thorough look at the history of the Gulf and the contemporary issues affecting the region, this will be essential reading for students of Middle East history, military history and diplomatic history.

Al Ibadiyya A Bibliography

by Martin H. Custers, Al Ibadiyya A Bibliography Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Al Ibadiyya A Bibliography books, Für eine beträchtliche Zeit war der Ibadismus ein vernachlässigtes Forschungsobjekt, sowohl im Westen, als auch in der arabischen Welt und darüber hinaus. Seit ungefähr einem Jahrzehnt ändert sich dies jedoch schnell. Immer mehr Studenten, Forscher und Wissenschaftler schenken dem Ibadismus und seiner reichen Geschichte im Maghreb, Mashriq und in der Region des Indischen Ozeans, insbesondere bei Sansibar und Ostafrika, Beachtung. Internationale Konferenzen mit allen Aspekten der al-Ibadiyya, die nicht selten durch das omanische Ministerium für Stiftungen und religiöse Angelegenheiten angeregt werden, etablieren sich zu einem wiederkehrenden Phänomen. Die Ibaditen werden nicht länger mit den Kharijis und den negativen Konnotationen, die dieser Bewegung anhaften, gleichgesetzt. Weitere Studien könnten sogar zu dem Verständnis führen, dass al-Ibadiyya als die älteste aller islamischen Madhahib angesehen werden kann. Die drei Bände Al-Ibadiyya, a Bibliography bieten ein komfortables Werkzeug im Studium des Ibadismus. Die ersten beiden Bände Ibadis of the Mashriq and Ibadis of the Maghrib, incl. Egypt, enthalten Werke von Ibadi Autoren, darunter druckfertige Werke sowie Manuskripte, die vor allem dem Ibadi Turath angehören. Neben Informationen zu den Autoren und ihren Werken finden sich sekundäre Quellen und Verweise auf verwandte Elemente in den beiden anderen Bänden; Details zu den Manuskripten werden nebst ihrer Standorte angegeben. Ein Namensindex erleichtert die Suche nach einem bestimmten Autor. Dem dritten Band dieser Bibliographie, der Sekundärliteratur, sind nicht nur Veröffentlichungen zuzuordnen, die unmittelbar und ausschließlich auf Ibadismus -Bücher, Artikel, Dissertationen und noch nicht veröffentlichte Vorträge zurückzuführen sind, es werden auch Titel berücksichtigt, die oft über indirekten Zusammenhang zum Ibadismus verfügen, wie beispielsweise Ibadi-bezogene Themen zu Djerba, dem Jabal Nafusa, Mizab, der modernen Geschichte des Oman, Sansibar usw. Diese werden noch ergänzt um zahlreiche Querverweise und verwandte Elemente innerhalb dieses Bandes wie auch der beiden anderen Bände. Ausgewählte Sachregister am Ende erleichtern die gezielte Suche. Die drei Bände dieser zweiten, überarbeiteten und erweiterten Auflage der Al-Ibadiyya Bibliographie sind das Ergebnis von Reisen nach Mizab, Djerba, Tripolitanien sowie Kairo in den frühen 1970er Jahren, auch kommen neuere Abschnitte, basierend auf der Arbeit von insgesamt sechs Monaten in den verschiedenen gut ausgestatteten Bibliotheken des Sultanats Oman, sowie dem Studium möglichst vieler Publikationen über den Ibadismus und nicht zuletzt der ausgiebigen Recherche im Internet hinzu. Al-Ibadiyya, a Bibliography sollte daher eher als ein Handbuch über den Ibadismus betrachtet werden, denn als eine bloße Bibliographie. Studienanfänger sowie erfahrene Forscher werden in diesen Bänden ein unverzichtbares Instrument für ihre Studien finden.****************For a considerable time Ibadism has been a neglected field of studies, in the West as well as in the Arab world and beyond. Since a decennium or so this is changing fast. More and more students, researchers and scholars are paying attention to Ibadism and its rich history in the Maghrib, in the Mashriq and in the region of the Indian Ocean, especially Zanzibar and East Africa. International conferences on all kinds of aspects of al-Ibadiyya, more often than not stimulated by the Omani Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs, are becoming a recurring phenomenon. No longer the Ibadis are simply equated with the Kharijis and the negative connotation attached to that movement. Further studying might very well even lead to the understanding that al-Ibadiyya is the oldest of all Islamic Madhahib. The three volumes of Al-Ibadiyya, a Bibliography offer a comfortable tool in studying Ibadism. The first two volumes, Ibadis of the Mashriq and Ibadis of the Maghrib, incl. Egypt, contain works by Ibadi authors, printed works and manuscripts, mostly works which can be considered to belong to the Ibadi Turath. Information is given on the authors and on their works, with secondary sources and references to related items in the other two volumes; of manuscripts details are given as well as their locations. An index of names facilitates finding a particular author. As for the third volume of this bibliography, Secondary Literature, it does not only contain publications directly and strictly related to Ibadism -books, articles, dissertations, not yet published conference lectures, but also titles often not directly related to Ibadi works or Ibadi subjects, such as books and articles on Jerba, the Jabal Nafusa, Mizab, the modern history of Oman, Zanzibar etc., with as much cross-references as possible to related items within this volume and in the other two volumes. Selected subject indexes at the end facilitate searching. The three volumes of this second, revised and enlarged edition of Al-Ibadiyya, a Bibliography are the results of visits to Mizab, Jerba, Tripolitania and Cairo in the early 1970s, more recent work of, in all, six months in several rich libraries in the Sultanate of Oman, as well as the studying of as much as possible publications on Ibadism, and searching on the world wide web. Al-Ibadiyya, a Bibliography is to be considered a handbook on Ibadism rather than a mere bibliography. Beginning students of Ibadism as well as seasoned researchers will find this work an indispensable instrument for their studies.
