Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book From Al-Andalus To Khurasan presents the table of contents, a list of plates, list of figures, acknowledgements and notes on references, dates, editions and contributors. The book is based on papers given at the second International Society for Arabic Papyrology (ISAP) conference in Granada. The second ISAP conference was born of the happy intersection of ISAP's aims with those of the Granadan Arabic document project. It focuses on an exceptional sort of evidence: documents from the Islamic Middle Ages, written records witnessing a given action, transaction or exaction which was valued as worth being noted down by those involved in it with the aim of preserving its recollection and effects in the future. The relative scarcity of these documents for the medieval Muslim world make of them precious primary sources.

Keywords: Al-Andalus; Granadan Arabic document project; ISAP; Khurasan
