Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies

Our growing Islamic and Middle Eastern studies program ranges from the ancient Middle East to the socioeconomic and religious developments of the twenty-first century. Alongside innovative studies on the Qur’an, we publish works on the legal and philosophical dimensions of Islam, historical

and sociological studies, and treatments of contemporary topics such as the digital humanities and secularism. Our portfolio includes journals, book series, and a wide range of individual titles (in hardback and eBook format, and in some cases in paperback and open access formats).
