Amazon.com description: Product Description:
This book explores broad-ranging themes relating to memory, memorization, memorializing or commemorating in a variety of historical, legal, literary and architectural contexts. Distinguished scholars like Abbas Amanat, Irene Bierman, Elton Daniel, George Makdisi, Roy Mottahedeh, Andrew Newman, Ismail K. Poonawala, and Paul E. Walker examine lists and maps as memory aids, the transmission of knowledge and traditions from medieval to early modern times, the application of medieval notions of law and statecraft and the commemoration of individuals, civilizations and dynasties in historical and literary works, on coinage and in monumental forms.

Published by I.B.Tauris in association with the Institute of Ismaili Studies.
