This pioneering, multidisciplinary volume, explores a rich constellation of ideas about the natural environment in the Middle East and their philosophical, political, historical, and gendered roots. It does this through close textual analyses of the Epic of Gilgamesh (Sharif Elmusa), Hayy Ibn Yazan and Robinson Crusoe (Robert Switzer), the Letter of the Animals (Elizabeth Sartain), and modern Egyptian fiction (Maysa Hayward). These are framed by an editorÕs introduction and an article by John McNeill, winner of 2001 World History Association Book Award.
