4 ABED, Shukri B. AL-FARABI, Abu Nasr Mohammed) ARISTOTLE) Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi
State University of New York Press, Albany, 1991, ISBN:0791403971 
ABED, Shukri B. Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi. (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1991). First Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-xxv,(1),[1]-201,(3). 8vo, decorated pink glossy paper covered boards, dark blue titles to front and spine. "This book explores the reaction of tenth-century Arab philosopher Abu Nasr Alfarabi to the logical works of Aristotle. From numerous short treatises the author develops a systematic and comprehensive topical survey of Alfarabi's logical writings. The book is divided into two major parts: language as a tool of logic (chapters 1-5) and logic as a tool with which to analyze language (chapter 6). The first five chapters deal with Alfarabi's analysis of the meanings of various terms as they are used in logic and philosophy. Alfarabi refutes the Artab grammarians who claimed that Arab logicians were building a language within a language and shows that the philosophical meanings of terms are in fact their most original and essential meanings. The final chapter deals with Alfarabi's analysis of certain aspects of the Arabic language (such as copula) and demonstrates that Arabic, like any natural language, conforms to universal logical structures of which natural languages are only a concrete expression." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Particulars and Universals: An Introduction to Alfarabi's Logical Lexicon; 2. Definition and Description in Alfarabi's System; 3. The Concept of Essence in Alfarabi; 4. The Concepts of Demonstration, Division, and Classification and Their Relationship to Definition;5. The Term Mawjud in Nonlogical Contexts; 6. Alfarabi's Linguistic Philos ophy. Very good. 37.50

Jakarta : A History. First Edition, ABEYASEKERE, Susan
9 ABEYASEKERE, Susan Jakarta : A History. First Edition
Oxford University Press, Singapore [et al], 1987, ISBN:0195826884 1987 0195826884 / 9780195826883 
ABEYASEKERE, Susan. Jakarta : A History. Singapore [et al] : Oxford University Press, 1987. Pp (4),[v]-xvii,(3),[3]-280,(2),+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated grey paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in blue, orange, pale yellow, white and black.

"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country." (from the back cover).

ABULAFIA, David, ed. The Mediterranean in History. Edited by David Abulafia. Texts by David Abulafia, Oliver Rackham, Marlene Suano, Mario Torelli, Geoffrey Rickman, John Pryor, Michel Balard, Molly Greene, Jeremy Black. Los Angeles : The J. Paul Getty Museum, (2003). First US Printing. Pp. (4),[5]-320. With 161 colour and 147 black-and-white illustrations. Large 8vo, bluecloth with gilt lettering to spine. "For over four thousand years the Medi terranean was the center of Western civilization. Geographically, it is a world in miniature, an inland sea whose shores encompass every type of terrain and climate -- barren deserts, fertile plains, snow-capped mountains, peninsulas, islands, and separate minor seas with distinct characters of their own. Historically, it has been the meeting place of the cultures of Europe, Asia, and Africa, the battleground of races and nations, and the focus of three great religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The distinguished Mediterranean scholar David Abulafia has brought together a team of eightleading specialists from many countries to tell this enthralling and compl ex story as a connected narrative: from a description of the physical setting, the prehistoric traders, and the struggle between Phoenicians, Greeks, and Etruscans ending in Roman victory, to a discussion of the post-Roman nations, the Christian powers in the north, the Islamic powers in the south, the domination by England and France, and, finally, the twentieth century, divided between war and mass tourism. This richly illustrated book offers contemporary historical writing at its best and will engage specialists, students, and general readers alike." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. "Thephysical setting" (Oliver Rackham); 2. "The first trading empires: prehist ory to c.1000 BC" (Marlene Suano); 3. "The battle for the sea routes: 1000-300 BC" (Mario Torelli); 4.
