Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Material Evidence and Narrative Sources: Interdisciplinary Studies of the History of the Muslim Middle East contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations, illustrations and contributors. The book discusses an international workshop that has sought to integrate material evidence and narrative sources in a fresh approach to the historical and archeological study of the medieval and modern Middle East. In a short paper entitled, "The Emergence of Islamic Civilization", Michael Cook examined a seventh century silver coin. The obverse appears typically Sassanian, while the reverse bears the legend 'Year one of Yazīd', thus presumably associating the coin with the Umayyad Caliph Yazīd I.

Keywords: Islamic civilization; Umayyad Caliph Yazīd I
