Middle East & Islamic Studies

A Core Bibliography on Islam, the Middle East and North Africa


Rev. 4/18/05

This list is a compilation (in-progress) of titles in English language that are deemed appropriate for college level studies related to the Middle East, North Africa and the religion of Islam. The titles are available in the Cornell Library system, mostly in Olin and Uris libraries.

In addition to the literary works written by Arabs, Persians and Turks, you will find studies of Middle Eastern literatures, ethnographic studies of different communities, religious practices, the culture and situation of women, dramas and festival performances, Social life and customs in general, etc. These chosen titles are neither too technical, nor simplified

In order to choose readings on a subject that interests you, I suggest looking over this list carefully. Since these books (or videos, CDs, sound records, etc.) vary widely in difficulty, length, and type of study, it is important to find a group that you will enjoy better. Spend time in the library looking over the books you might want to read before you make your decision. You may find more titles on your topic in the stacks that are not listed here.

NB: Titles directly related to Israel and Jewsih studies are not included here, as they are the jurisdiction of the Jewish Studies Bibliographer.

Arab Contributions to Philosophy

The mainstream paradigm, in general, describes the influence of Islamic scholarship chiefly in terms of its "preservation and transmission of portions of ancient Greek philosophy that had been lost to medieval Europe." George Sarton once criticized those who "will glibly say 'the Arabs simply translated Greek writings, they were industrious imitators...' This is not absolutely untrue, but it is such a small part of the truth that when it is allowed to stand alone, it is worse than a lie." And then there is another historian of science, Colin Ronan, "Too often science in Arabia has been seen nothing more than a holding operation. The area has been viewed as a giant storehouse for previously discovered scientific results, keeping them until they could be passed on for use in the West. But this is, of course, a travesty of the truth." (Note the word science is used in its historic meaning--knowledge, comprehensively defined, including philosophy, etc.)
