Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Entre mémoire et pouvoir: L'espace syrien sous les derniers Omeyyades et les premiers Abbassides (v. 72-193/692-809) presents the table of contents and the acknowledgements, a list of tables, diagrams and figures, a map of the main Umayyad in Palmyrene sites and in the Balqāʾ, figures showing the genealogy of the Umayyads, the Abbasids and the Hashimites, and a list of abbreviations. In the perspective of history of the memory and history of the senses, this book offers a new approach to the Syrian area of the 2nd / 8th century, highlighting the historiographical projects and Abbasid Umayyad and practices of power. It demonstrates that a robust culture of historical writing existed in 2nd/8th century Syria, and offers new methodological approaches to access this now lost history, torn between memory and oblivion. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Abbasids; historical writing; Syria; Umayyads
