Kinship and Marriage in Early Arabia
'The object of the present volume is to collect and discuss the available evidence as to the genesis of the system of male kinship, with the corresponding laws of marriage and tribal organisation, which prevailed in Arabia at the time of Mohammed.' Thus wrote the author in his original preface to this work on its first publication in 1885; and though a century has passed, the essential elements of the work remain as an authoritative and accurate study of this complex subject. This edition is taken in facsimile from the revised and annotated work of 1907, edited by Stanley Cook. It contains the author's own corrections and additional notes, along with those of the editor and pre-eminent academics of the day.
