The Power of Place in the Early Islamic World

Zayde Antrim

  • Features a new conceptual framework, the "discourse of place," which analyzes a wide range of formal texts over a substantial period of time
  • Adopts an interdisciplinary approach that combines insights from the fields of geography and literary criticism with historical methods.
  • Challenges a widespread tendency to underestimate the importance of territory and to over-emphasize the importance of religion and family to notions of community and belonging among Muslims and Arabs
