Zenobia, Khadîja en Dolle Amina's : gender en macht in de islamitische geschiedenis by Maaike van Berkel( )

8 editions published in 2009 in Dutch and Undetermined and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dit jaarboek voor vrouwengeschiedenis worden een aantal interessante historische vrouwelijke personages uit de islamitische geschiedenis belicht, die weerwerk bieden aan het stereotiepe beeld van de passieve en onderdrukte islamitische vrouw. Vanuit een kritisch genderperspectief op de machtsverhoudingen in de islamitische geschiedenis leveren de bijdragen in dit boek een genuanceerd en complex beeld op van vrouwen in islamitische gemeenschappen in heden en verleden
Crisis and continuity at the Abbasid court : formal and informal politics in the caliphate of al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) by Maaike van Berkel( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reign of al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) is a crucial and controversial epoch in the history of the Abbasid empire. Al-Muqtadir's regime has traditionally been depicted as one of decline, when the political power of the caliphate and the lustre of its capital began to crumble. This book not only offers a substantial investigation of the idea and reality of decline, but also provides new interpretations of the inner workings of the court and the empire. The authors, four specialists of Abbasid history, explore the formal and informal power relationships that shaped politics at the court, involving bureaucrats, military, harem, courtiers and of course al-Muqtadir himself. A study of the topography of Baghdad completes this vivid picture of the court and its capital
Legal documents as sources for the history of Muslim societies : studies in honour of Rudolph Peters( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a tribute to the work of legal and social historian and Arabist Rudolph Peters (University of Amsterdam). Presenting case studies from different periods and areas of the Muslim world, the book examines the use of legal documents for the study of the history of Muslim societies. From examinations of the conceptual status of legal documents to comparative studies of the development of legal formulae and the socio-economic or political historical information documents contain, the aim is to approach legal documents as specialised texts belonging to a specific social domain, while simultaneously connecting them to other historical sources. It discusses the daily functioning of legal institutions, the reflections of regime changes on legal documentation, daily life, and the materiality of legal documents

Prince, Pen, and Sword : Eurasian Perspectives by Maaike van Berkel( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prince, Pen, and Sword offers a synoptic interpretation of rulers and elites in Eurasia from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century. Four core chapters zoom in on the tensions and connections at court, on the nexus between rulers and religious authority, on the status, function, and self-perceptions of military and administrative elites respectively. Two additional concise chapters provide a focused analysis of the construction of specific dynasties (the Golden Horde and the Habsburgs) and narratives of kingship found in fiction throughout Eurasia. The contributors and editors, authorities in their fields, systematically bring together specialised literature on numerous Eurasian kingdoms and empires. This book is a careful and thought-provoking experiment in the global, comparative and connected history of rulers and elites"--

1 edition published in 2005 in Dutch and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

De invloed van vrouwen aan het hof van de kalief reikte buiten de muren van de harem. Doordat zij makkelijk toegang hadden tot de hoogste macht, de kalief, fungeerden ze vaak als schakels in de informele netwerken van hoge ambtenaren en militaire leiders. Auteur kijkt naar de rol van een aantal invloedrijke vrouwen aan het hof van de achttiende Abbasidische kalief te Bagdad, al-Muqtadir
