The Land of Enki in the Islamic Era, Pearls, Palms and Religious Identity in Bahrain

By Timothy Insoll

Published by Kegan Paul in 2005, 575 pages. Hardback with Dust Jacket (N1746WSOU11)

Presenting the results of a recent archaeological survey of the region, this book attempts to uncover the history of Bahrain during the period between the 6th and 13th centuries AD, of which little is currently understood

Technologies such as pearl diving and pottery manufacture, as well as animal keeping and butchery, are all considered. Additionally, this book examines the role of trade and commerce in creating the complex history manifest in the Persian Gulf region, as well as the role of religious and other identities in that culture.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The dust jacket has some very light wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
