✏The Formation of Islamic Art Book Summary : This classic work on the nature of early Islamic art has now been brought up to date in order to take into consideration material that has recently come to light. In a new chapter, Oleg Grabar develops alternate models for the formation of Islamic art, tightens its chronology, and discusses its implications for the contemporary art of the Muslim world. Reviews of the first edition: "Grabar examines the possible ramifications of sociological, economic, historical, psychological, ecological, and archaeological influences upon the art of Islam. . . [He] explains that Islamic art is woven from the threads of an Eastern, Oriental tradition and the hardy, surviving strands of Classical style, and [he] illustrates this web by means of a variety of convincing and well-chosen examples."--Art Bulletin "A book of absorbing interest and immense erudition. . . All Islamic archaeologists and scholars will thank Professor Grabar for a profound and original study of an immense and complex field, which may provoke controversy but must impress by its mastery and charm by its modesty."--Times Literary Supplement "Oleg Grabar, in this book of exceptional subtlety and taste, surveys and extends his own important contributions to the study of early Islamic art history and works out an original and imaginative approach to the elusive and complex problems of understanding Islamic art."--American Historical Review

✏The Formation of Islamic Law Book Summary : The fourteen studies included in this volume have been chosen to serve several purposes simultaneously. At a basic level, they aim to provide a general - if not wholly systematic - coverage of the emergence and evolution of law during the first three and a half centuries of Islam. On another level, they reflect the different and, at times, widely divergent scholarly approaches to this subject matter. These two levels combined will offer a useful account of the rise of Islamic law not only for students in this field but also for Islamicists who are not specialists in matters of law, comparative legal historians, and others. At the same time, however, and as the Introduction to the work argues, this collection of distinguished contributions illustrates both the achievements and the shortcomings of paradigmatic scholarship on the formative period of Islamic law.

✏ Proper Muslim Against authentic Kyrgyz Book Summary : In this study, I examine the oppositional configuration of public figures around the poles of "proper" Muslimness and "authentic" Kyrgyzness in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I ask: Why are public actors defining their positions in opposition to the other? Why do such opposing positions tend to crystallize around two poles: "proper" Muslimness versus "authentic" Kyrgyzness? Why cannot one be a "proper Muslim" and an "authentic Kyrgyz" in Kyrgyzstan today? Why do Islamic actors choose to collaborate with each other? Why do we not see more competition among Islamic actors in Bishkek when it is a common phenomenon among Muslims in other parts of the world? Based on ethnographic research, I look at the process of turning public figures into two opposing groups around two opposing poles by focusing on the encounter between the post-Soviet present and the legacies of Soviet history. I demonstrate that Soviet nationality and religion policies made Muslimness subordinate to Kyrgyzness, which is defined through language, customs, and values unique to the Kyrgyz. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the institutions that created and maintained the definition of Muslimness as such have also collapsed. In addition, the liberal policies post-Soviet Kyrgyzstani governments introduced in matters of religion and economics opened the country to outside world and provided the Kyrgyz with new opportunities and means to challenge the identification of Islam with Kyrgyz traditions and to promote a view of Muslimness that is no more defined within the limits of Kyrgyzness but more parallel with the global trends of Islamization. Yet, such efforts by particular Kyrgyz to create a new definition of Muslimness with the new means at hand are challenged by the intelligentsia who are the products of the very system that had subordinated the religion to ethnic identity and that had assigned the intelligentsia as the promoters and guardians of Kyrgyzness. Motivated by an overriding sense of urgency and desperation to save the Kyrgyz people from post-Soviet chaos, they promote new narratives of national identity and position themselves in opposition to the Islamic actors whom they think threaten their efforts to construct an authentic Kyrgyzness. I examine the process of polarization between Islamic actors and the intelligentsia by using Bourdieu's theory of fields and Giddens' concept of "ontological security."
