The Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World (EJIW) covers an area of Jewish history, religion, and culture which until now has lacked its own cohesive/discreet reference work. The Encyclopedia aims to fill the gap in academic reference literature on the Jews of Muslim lands particularly in the late medieval, early modern and modern periods. EJIW Online will be updated twice yearly with newly commissioned articles, illustrations, multimedia, and primary source material. The Outright Purchase price includes substantial additions of material in 2011 and 2012 (photographs, audio files, primary sources).
The eventually 16 volume Encyclopaedia Islamica is due to become one of the major comprehensive reference works on Islam and the Muslim world. A unique feature is the attention given to aspects of Islamic heritage, particularly Shiism, which makes it complementary to other encyclopedias.
This collection draws on rich primary sources-texts, personal letters, journal essays, radio broadcasts, memoirs from women’s congresses-which allow these women to speak in their own voices. The documents, most of which are in Spanish, fall into three categories: works by feminists about feminists and their causes, works by men on the status of women, and literary works by feminist writers that illustrate or discuss the condition of women.
