about

A comprehensive reference on the history of Arabic Language and script, which goes beyond the sole discussion of technical matters. It scrutinizes the overall mainstream western theories about the history of the Arabs and Arabia, in connection with the roles played by Western Near East scholarship, religion, and colonial history in the formation of the current belief system, which is an essential step to study this correlated and complex topic objectively. As a reference tool, the book studies objectively the evidence presented by modern-day western archeological discoveries together with the evidence presented by the indispensable scholarly work of the past Islamic Arab civilization era. Specifically, it investigates the early shapes of the pre-Islamic Arabic script, Jazm, and compares them to those of Musnad Arabic and late Nabataean Aramaic inscriptions, in addition to those of the early Islamic Arabic manuscripts and papyri.
