Hira, the centre of the Lakhmid kingdom, was where the early Arabic alphabet was standardised. In The Lakhmids of Hira, Yasmine Zahran brings her lively yet informed style to bear on a hitherto unjustly neglected dynasty of Arabia s history. Introduced by Dr Robert Hoyland, with a chronology and a detailed bibliography, The Lakhmids of Hira is a required addition to the shelves of any Arabist or Middle East historian.

Yasmine Zahran was educated at Columbia University and the University of London. She received a doctorate in archaeology at the Sorbonne, Paris. She is the author of many books focusing on pre-Islamic peoples in Arabia and the Near East.
