The states on the south coast of the Persian Gulf were once part of the Ottoman Empire, even if only loosely so. Unfortunately, their history is rarely considered to be closely tied with that of the Ottomans. However, the ‘discovery’ of the Gulf by the Portuguese and the ultimate arrival of the British meant that the body of water would become a point of contact between the two empires. Zekeriya Kursun’s book explores the roots of the Anglo-Ottoman conflict in Qatar. Kursun starts by describing the Ottoman expansion into Qatar and takes the reader through the nineteenth century, when Ottoman control weakened due to British activity and into the twentieth century when Ottoman rule in the Arab world would finally cease. In addition to the main text, Kursun includes a collection of transcribed documents from the Ottoman archives and a selection of historical maps of Qatar.

The Problem of Evil

Ibn Sina's Theodicy
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0654-3
Who of us has not wondered why a God with absolute attributes causes or allows evil in the world? This most puzzling issue, known as the problem of evil, received significant attention from Ibn Sina. In the present work, Dr. Inati argues that Ibn Sina provides seven theses to justify God's causing or allowing the presence of evil, and that only the thesis which relies on God’s omnipotence as defined by Ibn Sina eliminates the problem of evil in his philosophy. The book is an original piece of work and the first comprehensive study of Ibn Sina's Theodicy, which helped shape later Islamic and Christian treatments of the subject and left significant marks on the thought of major medieval philosophers, including Ibn Rushd, Aquinas and Suarez.
