In his probing study of the role of death rites in the making of Islamic society, Leor Halevi imaginatively plays prescriptive texts against material culture and advances new ways of interpreting highly contested sources. His original research reveals that religious scholars of the early Islamic period produced codes of funerary law not only to define the handling of a Muslim corpse but also to transform everyday urban practices. Relying on oral traditions, these scholars established new social patterns in the cities of Arabia, Mesopotamia, and the eastern Mediterranean. They distinguished Islamic rites from Christian, Jewish, and Zoroastrian rites and changed the way men and women interacted publicly and privately. In each chapter Halevi explores a different layer of human interaction, following the movement of the corpse from the deathbed to the grave. In the process he analyzes the real and imaginary relationships between husbands and wives, prayer leaders and mourners, and even dreamers and the dead. He describes how Muslims wailed for the deceased, prepared corpses for burial, marched in funerary processions, and prayed for the dead, highlighting the specific economic and political factors involved in these rituals as well as key religious and sexual divisions. Offering a unique perspective on the making of Islamic social and religious ideals during this early period, Halevi forges a fascinating link between the development of funerary rites and the efforts of an emerging religion to carve out its own, distinct identity. Muhammad's Grave is a groundbreaking history of the rise of Islam and the roots of contemporary Muslim attitudes toward the body and society.

This new collection of poems by Allen Ginsberg was the winner of Yugoslavia's Struga Poetry Festival "Golden Wreath" in 1986. The title poem, "White Shroud," is a dream apparition, a bittersweet epilogue to the poet's "Kaddish," the elegy written 25 years ago for his mother. The volume also contains a series of poems Ginsberg wrote during a trip to the People's Republic of China in 1984. Among the poetic modes he experiments with are: political rock-and-roll lyrics and rap; surreal anecdotes; Eastern "doha" and precise American haikus; vivid erotic narratives; heroic couplets; national blues; danceable instruction for classic Buddhist sitting meditation; descriptive sketches; and rhymeless sonnet.
