Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Perhaps the famous anthologist himself, or some other 10th-century Iraqi longing for the happy days of the past began consoling himself by collecting verse graffiti by people who did not feel at home. Some he came across himself, others he heard or read about. Crone (Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton U.) and Moreh (Hebrew U.) translate the resulting book and support it with a discussion of its authorship and cultural context and maps. They are considerate of non-specialist readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
