Jewish Messiahs in a Christian Empire
A History of the Book of Zerubbabel
Martha Himmelfarb

"We can only welcome an
undertaking like the Murty
Classical Library of India,

"In the process of analyzing the most famous and detailed medieval
Jewish apocalypse work and unraveling its many puzzles, Himmelfarb
develops a striking new account of the history of Jewish messianism
from the Bible to the Middle Ages. This book is groundbreaking and
innovative, opening the way for a whole new era in the study of postChristian Judaism."

Islamic Law and Statecraft between the Ottoman and British Empires
Faiz Ahmed

history, modernization in non-European contexts, and transnational
Muslim networks...This is a well-crafted, theoretically rich, tightly
argued, and rigorously executed book."

Sea of the Caliphs

The Mediterranean in the Medieval Islamic World
Christophe Picard
Translated by Nicholas Elliott

"In Sea of the Caliphs, Picard shows that the Mediterranean, long
considered marginal to Islam, even reduced to a clichéd playground
for pirates, was in reality a major site for the development of Muslim
societies between the seventh and twelfth centuries. He recasts the
traditional view of Fernand Braudel by making Islam the dominant
actor in this space for several centuries, not only as a military power
but also as a commercial and intellectual force."
