Rumusan :

The story of how Arab editors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries revolutionized Islamic literature.In the first wide-ranging account of the effects of print and the publishing industry on Islamic scholarship, El Shamsy tells the fascinating story of how a small group of editors and intellectuals brought forgotten works of Islamic literature into print and defined what became the classical canon of Islamic thought.

Through the lens of the literary culture of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Arab cities―especially Cairo, a hot spot of the nascent publishing business―he explores the contributions of these individuals, who included some of the most important thinkers of the time. Through their efforts to find and publish classical literature, El Shamsy shows, many nearly lost works were recovered, disseminated, and harnessed for agendas of linguistic, ethical, and religious reform.
