The Byzantine and Early Islamic Near East (4 Volume Set)
edited by Averil Cameron, Lawrence I. Conrad, Geoffrey King and John Haldon
Volume 1: Problems in the Literary Source Material
focuses on the problems researchers face when using (Byzantine) Greek, Syriac and Arabic sources together for the reconstruction of Near Eastern history from 400-ca. 800.

Volume 2: Land Use and Settlement Patterns
revisits archaeological evidence from Syria, Palestine, the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq and Egypt describing a variety of land-use patterns and the development of a particular type of settlement across the Near East.

Volume 3: States, Resources and Armies
focuses on a comparative analysis of Byzantine, Sasanian and Muslim armies and their impact on state resources

Volume 4: Elites Old and New
presents a collection of critical analyses of the structure, historical development, and composition of the elite strata of late Roman, Byzantine, and early Islamic societies in the eastern Mediterranean basin.

"Taken together, these studies offer clear guidance to novices and invaluable points of reference for all students of the Byzantine and Islamic worlds in this period." (Jonathan Shepard)
