It aims to promote, foster and cultivate the academic study of the 'Abbasid dynasty. This book contains the papers delivered by a distinguished array of leading scholars at a meeting of the School of 'Abbasid Studies at the Catholic University of Leuven from 28 June until 1 July 2004. It provides a fully contemporary insight into the cutting edge of 'Abbasid Studies.
