Rome and the Arabs before the Rise of Islam provides a concise introduction to the complex world of pre-Islamic Arabia and its relationship with the Roman Empire. Although concentrating on the relationship between the Arabs and the Romans, the book also draws on sources and material from the Sasanian Empire. The Sasanian Empire played an important role in the growing political and religious identity of Arabs in the pre-Islamic period, though one which is not very well understood. Taking Romans, Sasanians, and Arabs together, the book sets out, from an historical perspective - rather than a theological or an ideological one - the political and religious affairs of the Arabs in the period usually known as 'late antiquity,' from the end of the third century until the Muslim invasions nearly halfway through the seventh. With the inclusion of maps, illustrations, a timeline, glossary and further reading Rome and the Arabs before the Rise of Islam allows students to understand the dynamics of this confusing period in Roman history.
