This fourth selection of studies by David Ayalon takes up the theme of the preceding volume, that of the opposition between the Abode of Islam and the external world, the Abode of War. Similarly, a number of the articles are concerned with the impact of outsiders, moving into the world of Islam, but others focus on aspects of the conflict between the two worlds, for instance raising the question of why it was only on the Nubian frontier that the early Arab advance was halted. The majority of the studies however concentrate on the Mamluk institution, especially in Mamluk Egypt, and carry forward the author's argument of the decisiveness of the slave institution in Muslim society, particularly this socio-military component which played such a critical role in both the expansion and the defense of Islam. Cette quatrieme selection d'etudes de David Ayalon reprend le theme du volume precedent: celui de l'opposition entre le monde de l'Islam et le monde exterieur, ou monde dela guerre. De faAon analogue, un certain nombre d'articles s'attachent A l'impact des etrangers s'installant dans le monde l'Islam, alors que d'autres se concentrant sur differents aspects du conflit entre les deux mondes, soulevant, par exemple, la question quant A la raison pour laquelle la premiere avance arabe fut uniquement arrAtee A la frontiere nubienne. La plupart des etudes cependant, se concentrent sur l'institution mamelouke, plus specifiquement en Egypte mamelouke. Elles poursuivent l'argument de l'auteur quant au caractere decisif de l'institution de l'esclavage dans la societe musulmane, plus particulierement en ce qui concerne l'element socio-militaire qui jouAct un rA'le primordial dans l'expansion et la defense de l'Islam.
