To accompany the existing Index of Persons, E.J. 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.

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

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.
