Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Muqarnas, Volume 24 History and Ideology: Architectural Heritage of the "Lands of Rum" contains no content. It is often claimed that while Western scholars have put forward a "holistic conception of Islamic art, in Muslim lands, some of which only established their territorial boundaries in the twentieth century, scholars have tended to proceed on 'national' lines". Regional scholarship on the "Lands of Rum" produced by Western and native authors has been fraught with its own essentialist biases in the form of prolific constructions of nationalist genealogy.

Keywords: Islamic art; Lands of Rum; Muqarnas
