Peters, F. E.:  
Mecca : A literary history of the Muslim Holy Land

Publisher: Princeton, University Press, 1994. (1st Edition).
xxiii + 471pp with b/w illus and maps. "For the non-Muslim, Mecca is the most forbidden of Holy Cities - and yet, in many ways it is the best known. Muslim historians and geographers have studied it, and countless pilgrims and travellers - many of them European Christians in disguise - have left behind lively and well-publicised accounts of life in Mecca and its associated shrine-city of Medina, where the Prophet lies buried. The stories of all these figures, holy men and heathens alike, come together in this book to offer a literary portrait of the city's traditions and urban life and of the surrounding area. Closely following the publication of F.E. Peters's "The Hajj" (Princeton, 1994), which describes the perilous pilgrimage itself from the travellers' perspectives, this collection of writings and commentary completes the historical travelogue. The accounts begin with the Muslims themselves, in the patriarchal age of Abraham and Ishmael, and trace the sometimes glorious and sometimes sad history of Islam's central shrine down to the last Grand Sharif of Mecca, Husayn ibn Ali, whose fragile kingdom was overtaken by the House of Sa'ud in 1926. Because of chronic flooding and constant rebuilding, there is little or no material evidence for the early history of Islam's holy cities. By assembling, analyzing, and fashioning these literary accounts of Mecca, however, Peters supplies us with a vivid sense of place and human interaction, much as he did in his work "Jerusalem" (Princeton, 1985)."

Umarah ibn Ali al-oHakami, 1120 or 21-1174 / Kay, Henry Cassels, 1827-1903.  
Yaman, Its Early Medieval History / by Najm ad-Din °Om¯arah Al-òHakami.

Publisher: Mansfield Centre, Conn. : Martino Pub. 2005..
xxv, 358 p., 1 l., 152 p., 1 large folding genealogical table, folding Map. 25 cm. Also the abridged history of its dynasties / by Ibn Khald¯un. And an account of the Karmathians of Yaman / by Abu °Abd Allah Baha ad-Din Al-Janadi. The original texts, with translation and notes / by Henry Cassels Kay. English and Arabic. Originally published: London : Edward Arnold,1892. "Yemen was one of the oldest centers of civilization in the Near East. Between the 9th century BC and the 6th century AD, it was part of the Minaean, Sabaean, Himyarite, Qatabanian, Hadhramawtian, and Awsanian kingdoms, which controlled the lucrative spice trade. It was known to the Romans as "Arabia Felix" ("Happy Arabia") because of the riches its trade generated; Augustus Caesar attempted to annex it, but the expedition failed. In the 7th century, Islamic caliphs began to exert control over the area. After this caliphate broke up, the former north Yemen came under control of Imams of various dynasties usually of the Zaidi sect, who established a theocratic political structure that survived until modern times. (Imam is a religious term. The Shiites apply it to the prophet Muhammad's son-in-law Ali, his sons Hassan and Hussein, and subsequent lineal descendants, whom they consider to have been divinely ordained unclassified successors of the prophet.) Egyptian Sunni caliphs occupied much of north Yemen throughout the 11th century. By the 16th century and again in the 19th century, north Yemen was part of the Ottoman Empire, and in some periods its Imams exerted control over south Yemen. This is a history of the Arabs of Yemen during the Medieval Period. It is a translation of `Umarah ibn early work on the subject. Umarah ibn's reputation is primarily as a poet, but he is also a leading historian of his native country,Yemen. (1903x). Fine, new from publisher.
