The rich diversity of the Muslim world is strikingly expressed through its myriad of cities. This reference volume presents abstracts of scholarship examining socio-cultural and cosmopolitan processes with aspects of material culture in contemporary and historic urban contexts. The abstracts, in English, Arabic and Turkish, examine cities as built (architecture and urban infrastructure) and lived (urban social life and culture) environments. The important subject of urban growth in Muslim majority countries over the past 50 years is dealt with in the abstracts of recent works which discuss issues of infrastructure and the environment, as well as migration from rural areas to cities. The topics related to cities and urban life which are discussed in these abstracts demonstrate that concerns are vary between Muslim majority countries, and from one decade to another.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The large-scale efforts of the editor, the scholars who completed the abstracts, and the translators who handled the transition between multiple languages, are to be praised. The work will be most useful for two main purposes: first, it provides scholars with abstracts of books that might be rare or difficult to find outside major research libraries, or outside the country of publication. Second, the volume can provide an overview of references in languages outside a scholar's specialization, in order to gain first insights into the existing literature." -- Patricia Blessing, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
