'"Ever since its first publication Brockelmann's Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur" has been an essential and very helpful tool of research for serious scholars of Islamic and Arab affairs.'
W. Montgomery Watt, Emeritus Professor, University of Edinburgh.
'"It is now nearly a century since the first edition of Brockelmann's GAL" was published, and in the intervening period, it has established itself as the essential, premier biobibliographical reference work for Arabic literature ranging from pre-Islamic times to the early twentieth century. It represents a stupendous achievement for one man, and it seems improbable that any one scholar will be able to replace it with an updated survey of similar chronological and regional breadth and such detail.'
C. Edmund Bosworth, Emeritus Professor, University of Manchester.
