Kinship & Marriage in Early Arabia by WILLIAM ROBETSON SMITH
Published by Darf in 1988
“The object of the present volume is to collect and discuss the available evidence as to the genesis of the system of male kinship, with the corresponding laws of marriage and tribal organisation, which prevailed in Arabia at the time of Mohammed.”
W. Robertson Smith expresses Kinship & Marriage in Early Arabia’s objective in the book’s original preface, written in 1885.
Although a century on, the book remains an essential contribution to the subject of marriage in the Middle East.
