Byzantium in Early Islamic Syria

This publication contains the proceedings of a 2007 conference organized by the Center for Arab and Middle East Studies (CAMES) at the American University of Beirut and the Center for Antiochene Studies at the University of Balamand. It is divided into two parts comprising two respective chronological eras, reflecting the intention of the conference to pursue a dual and comparative focus with the hope of throwing fresh light on both eras – the early Islamic period, from the Islamic conquests of Syria until the fall of the Umayyad dynasty (632–750), and the period of Byzantine reconquest of Syria (969–1084).​​

Quest for Understanding: Arabic and Islamic Studies in Memory of Malcolm H. Kerr

Malcolm Kerr was the ninth AUB president, serving only eighteen months before being assassinated in January 1984. This volume is a collection of essays in the memory of Dr. Kerr whose own scholarship centered on the politics and history of the Middle East and Islam. The studies are divided into three parts: Lebanon, past and present; the politics of the modern Middle East; and Islamic legacy. Under these sections a wide range of topics are covered, from the origin of the name Lebanon, to the Camp David negotiations, and the archaeology of early Islam.
