About the Author

Jack Tannous is assistant professor of history at Princeton University.


"The Making of the Medieval Middle East is no less than a marvelous achievement--there isn't a stone Tannous has left unturned in his path of inquiry. Future scholars will have to reconsider their methods and theses in light of this bold and exceptional book."--Uriel I. Simonsohn, author of A Common Justice: The Legal Allegiances of Christians and Jews under Early Islam
"This is undoubtedly a work of major importance. By shifting the focus from intellectual elites to everyday Christian believers, Tannous provides a more illuminating understanding of the gradual transition to the majority Islamic world of the medieval Middle East."--Sebastian Brock, author of An Introduction to Syriac Studies
"Tannous draws on a rich and fascinating selection of primary source material to paint a fresh picture of the early medieval Middle East."--Robert G. Hoyland, author of In God's Path: The Arab Conquests and the Creation of an Islamic Empire
"This is a marvelous book, dizzying in its detail, dazzling in its discipline. Tannous sees through the eyes not of intellectuals and professional theologians but of the vast mass of believers, whether Christian or Muslim. Meticulous, generous, evocative, and persuasive, The Making of the Medieval Middle East paints a neglected world in full color."--Margaret Mullett, professor emerita, Queen's University Belfast
"This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to understand the world the Arabs found in the seventh century and how they interacted with the Christian majority. Tannous brilliantly weaves complex religious and social questions to shed an entirely new light on a period that is still pivotal for us today."--Muriel Debi , cole Pratique des Hautes tudes, PSL
"In this strikingly original book, Jack Tannous has delivered a frontal assault on traditional assumptions about early Islam. His absorbing and persuasive exercise in microhistory focuses on the lived experience of ordinary people and presents us with a continuing Christian Middle East until at least the eleventh century."--Averil Cameron, University of Oxford
