Donald Quataert’s Manufacturing and Technology Transfer in the Ottoman Empire, 1800-1914 explores how modern industrial techniques were introduced to Anatolia in the nineteenth century. Quataert, a leading Ottoman economic historian, deals with technical issues – such as how factories were physically transported to the Ottoman Empire – as well as theoretical issues, such as the role of diaspora and non-Muslim communities in technology transfer. Quataert divides his work to focus on overcoming obstacles to the new technologies, the movement of low-level technology, the transfer of factories and the special case of the silk-weaving industry.

Language and Heresy in Ismaili Thought

The Kitab al-Zina of Abu Hatim al-Razi
ISBN: 978-1-59333-781-0
The heretofore unpublished Kitab al-Zina, virtually unknown in western scholarship, is a glossary of important Islamic terms by the 9th/10th-century Ismaili polymath Abu Hatim al-Razi. Some lament that Razi’s historical approach to etymology failed to catch on and that had it done so, the face of Arabic dictionary writing might have been altered for the better. His organization of material was uniquely Ismaili as he took pains to synthesize contradictory information into a harmonious whole. This study examines sections of Razi’s work with a view towards his contributions to the field of grammar and linguistics.

Victorian Images of Islam

ISBN: 978-1-60724-673-2
Victorian perceptions of Islam were not monochrome; some saw beyond stereotypical images, others reproduced them. In this study, the accounts of six Victorians outline the contrast of the two perceptions. It suggests that presuppositions, not encounters per se, determine how we see cultural and religious others.
