6. Volume 43 of Jerusalem Studies in Arabic and Islam 43 will be published in a few months.

“Osama Bin Laden Tapes” is a companion website to the book The Audacious Ascetic :
What the Bin Laden Tapes Reveal About Al-Qa’ida by Flagg Miller.
“Website has been designed to allow non-Arabic speakers to listen to material featured in The Audacious Ascetic while reading English translations in real-time as the recordings unfold. As the book demonstrates, much of the meaning of bin Laden’s words and the significance of Al-Qa’ida for his early primary audiences was lost when edited and converted to print, video, and electronic media for global consumption. These recorded excerpts have been selected and produced specifically to accompany the book. They are best contextualized in tandem with the perspectives and arguments therein.”
This space is dedicated to the working paper series published by the “Early Islamic Empire” project. The papers published here are works in progress and should be considered stimuli for debate.Posted in: Academic items
