Justin McCarthy is a controversial figure among historians of the Ottoman Empire. This collection of his work on demographics captures his views on the nature of the Ottoman populace in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. McCarthy argues that no study of Ottoman demographics is complete without looking at the official statistics collected through Ottoman censuses. McCarthy, therefore, pays less heed to travellers reports and the published figures of minority groups. McCarthy is primarily concerned with non-Muslim population figures and Muslim immigration into Anatolia during the nineteenth century. His work will be of interest to those who wish to consider his perspective on the question of Genocide, which is bound up with population statistics on the eve of the First World War. Population History of the Middle East and the Balkans also contains articles on other contested topics, whether it be population divisions in Ottoman Bosnia or Palestine.

Theory and Practice in Islamic Constitutionalism

From Classical Fiqh to Modern Systems
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0693-2
This groundbreaking study investigates theories of Islamic constitutionalism as expressed and implemented throughout the history of Islam. To achieve this, it first traces the roots of caliphate embedded within the seminal legal and political works of classical and modern Muslim thinkers. In its concluding chapters, the study maps out and discusses the subsequent transition of Islamic and Muslim governance into twentieth-century approaches to constitutionalism. Longo's resourceful and meticulous approach sheds new light on constitutionalism within the contemporary Muslim world and how it continues to be informed by, or departs from classical theories of Islamic and Muslim governance.

Daughter Zion's Trauma

A Trauma Informed Reading of Lamentations
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0744-1
Daughter Zion's Trauma offers a new critical reading of the Book of Lamentations through the lens of trauma studies. Through structural analysis and use of the concept of non-referential history as a heuristic lens, Yansen yields fresh insights into the book’s form, language, and larger "historical" significance. Utilizing insights from study of the rhetorical dimensions of the trauma process in cultural trauma, this study asserts that Lamentations strategically adapts certain religious traditions to ensure the survival of those whose voices it echoes.

Fate, Freedom, and Happiness

Clement and Alexander on the Dignity of Human Responsibility
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3928-2
In what particular manner human beings are free moral agents and to what extent they can reasonably expect to attain a good life are two intertwined questions that rose to prominence in antiquity and have remained so to the present day. This book analyzes and compares the approaches of two significant authors from different schools at the turn of the third century CE, Alexander of Aphrodisias and Clement of Alexandria. These contemporaries utilize their respective Peripatetic and Christian commitments in their employment of the shared Greek classics toward these shared ethical questions.
