Elaborate, explanatory notes from the author's 1859 translation of the Arabian Nights (the most famous literary product of classical Islamic civilization) comprise a virtual encyclopedia of Middle Eastern life. Intriguing account of Islamic society as it existed during the Middle Ages (when the Tales of the Arabian Nights were first written) considers importance of religion, literature, festivals, education, slavery, role of women in society, and rituals observed for the dead.
