Students of the influential historian Michael Cook (Near Eastern studies, Princeton U.), many of them now senior scholars, are the contributors to this collection of 14 essays. Reflecting Cook's main areas of scholarship, the essays consider events, texts, and historiography of early Islamic history; Ottoman history; and legal and religious texts and doctrines in the early modern Islamic world. A sampling of topics includes Maghribi fatwas as evidence of the legal status of science, the rhetoric behind historical accounts, the duties and architectural patronage of the first chief harem eunuch in 16th-century Istanbul, and the rhetoric and lessons behind the adaptation of the so-called battle of the ditch of Cordoban caliph Abd al-Rahman III. The volume includes a full bibliography and thoughtful assessment of Cook's scholarship, by R. Stephen Humphreys (U. of California, Santa Barbara), and an introduction by Michael Bonner (U. of Michigan). Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
