This English edition of the German "Lexikon der Vereinten Nationen" provides concise and comprehensive information not only about the structure of the UN system, its goals and functions, but about recent developments and reform efforts in the face of global opportunities and challenges.
The contributing authors are academic scholars of international law, economics and political sciences; active and former diplomats and UN officials; journalists and members of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and offer a variety of interesting perspectives.
The entries are provided with Internet addresses for further information and are supplemented in the annex with a trilingual list (English-French-German) of the most important institutions and items of the official terminology and a list of information facilities concerning the UN.
Readership: scholars and students of international law, international economics and political sciences, teachers, journalists, diplomats and politicians in the parliaments of the UN member states.
"This new encyclopedia on the United Nations is a welcome addition to the works of academic research and political analysis covering the organization, its complex goals in the post-cold war era, and its ever broader role in the new millennium. While taking stock of more than half a century's achievements and setbacks, the encyclopedia also reflects the many ways in which the United Nations touches the lives of people everywhere."
from the Preface by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan

As an index, it is of immeasurable importance, in particular for the many terms which are not given an entry but are discussed in the course of an article; and as a glossary it is an invaluable source of information for both non-specialists, who is given an insight into the varied and rich vocabulary of Islam, and the specialist, who may discover surprising new contexts in which a term is used.

Glossary and Index of Terms to Volumes I-IX and to the Supplement, Fascicules 1-6

Series:

Edited by Peri Bearman, E.J. van Donzel, Bosworth, Heinrichs and Thierry Bianquis

The Glossary & Index of Terms is, next to the Index of Proper Names and the Index of Subjects the third key to the vast corpus of knowledge contained in The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
The Glossary & Index of Terms, now brought up to date with the data of volume nine of the main work (1997, 920 pages), deals with the terms in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and other languages or dialects of the Islamic world.
Especially the listing of terms which are not given as a headword in The Encyclopaedia itself, but are discussed in the course of an article - and consequently hard to be found - will be of value to scholars and non-specialists alike.
Highly recommended for use with The Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Index of Subjects / Index des matières to Volumes / des Tomes I-IX

Series:

Peri Bearman

To accompany the existing Index of Persons, Brill has prepared an Index of Subjects, intended as an extra aid when using the Encyclopaedia of Islam. The sheer amount of information contained in the EI, and the fact that the entries are given in their Arabic form, require a good deal of searching on the part of the user, which the Index of Persons can only partially alleviate.
The Index of Subjects aims to lighten the user's work by providing a guide to the EI in the form of a thesaurus. Entries are given in English and French and are followed by the titles of the relevant EI-articles, as well as cross-references to articles which are not primarily about that subject, but include information which could be useful.
The student and scholar of Islam are hereby given a boost in unravelling the enormous richness of The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
