0 Reviews
This is the third selection of articles by the late R. B. Serjeant to be published by Variorum. It exemplifies the far-reaching contributions he made to the study of the society and institutions of Arabia, based both on extensive travel and first-hand observation, and on a profound knowledge of the written sources, whether early or modern. This present volume focuses on Southern Arabia and Bahrain, and covers customary law and practice in the areas of agriculture, fishing and navigation. Particular attention is given to calendars and to matters of irrigation and water conservation.
