The earliest Arabic sources including information about Eretz Israel date from the second half of the ninth century. These were written by geographers, travelers, and historians, as well as encyclopaedists (the latter especially relevant for the Mamluk period). Uri Tal provides selected translations into Hebrew with extensive annotations, in four parts: Part One: The Early Muslim Period (634â€"1099); Part Two: The Crusader and Ayyubid Periods (1099â€"1260); Part Three: The Mamluk Period (1260â€"1517); Part Four: many selections from the monumental work by Mujir al-Din.The volume's importance, in addition to making the sources available to readers of Hebrew, lies in the extensive annotation to the texts chosen and in the appendixes: detailed information about terms, persons, and places, as well as a chronological listing of all caliphs and sultans.
