Product Description


'Until now, there have been no monographs on poverty and charity in Islamic societies. Adam Sabra's volume is thus a welcome addition … Sabra's book is an excellent first volume in what is a growing sub-field in the history of the Middle East and Islamic societies.' Journal of Islamic Law and Society

'… an important contribution …' Jerusalem Studies in Arabic and Islam

Book Description

Adam Sabra explores poverty and charity in medieval Islamic society. Thus he sheds light on a world far removed from elite society, hitherto the province of Mamluk studies. This trend, in conjunction with comparisons between the Islamic world, Europe and China, will entice scholars from within the field and beyond.
