Arabic Humanities, Islamic Thought: Essays in Honor of Everett K. Rowson, edited by Joseph E. Lowry and Shawkat M. Toorawa

Jules Janssens


(First paragraph)

This Festschrift, presented to its dedicatee on the occasion of his seventieth birthday, reflects well the outstanding quality and wide range of scholarship of one of the leading American Arabists of the last several decades, Everett K. Rowson.

This rich variety of topics across such diverse areas is also present in the Festschrift. This makes any thematic presentation extremely difficult and the editors have decided wisely to offer none.
