“Some years ago the authors of this study set out to examine the effects of the impacts of western ideas on the social institutions of the Moslem lands in the Eastern Mediterranean area. In the course of their work they became aware that no adequate account existed of the state of Moslem society before the opening of the nineteenth century. The present volume is the first part of an attempt to supply this deficiency”. (Leaf Jacket).
