in Medieval Iraq

al-Khatib al-Baghdadi
Translated from the Arabic and illustrated by Emily Selove

Cloth $24.95s    |    978-0-8156-3298-6    |    2012

He’s fond of anyone who throws a party;

he’s always at a party in his dreams,

for party-crashing’s blazoned on his heart . . .

a prisoner to the path of fine cuisine.

  Selections from The Art of Party-Crashing

  Al-Khatib al-Baghdadi (1002–1071) was a Muslim preacher and scholar of the hadith. Al-Khatib is most well-known for Tarikh Baghdad (The History of Baghdad), which describes thousands of Baghdadi scholars. Like most of his writing, Tarikh Baghdad was intended as an aid for students of the hadith. Emily Selove is a PhD candidate and Arabic instructor at the University of California in Los Angeles. She is currently writing her dissertation on Hikayat Abi al-Qasim, an eleventh-century Arabic text about a Baghdadi party-crasher in Isfahan.

5 x 7, 168 pages, 10 black-and-white illustrations, notes, bibliography, index
