- "The Arabian Nights Encyclopedia is the first English-language reference work to present detailed, authoritative, and up-to-date research on all the published tales, covering key protagonists, themes, important translations, textual history, adaptations, works inspired by individual stories, and the literary context for each tale. Compiled by renowned scholars, the encyclopedia offers thoroughly researched and reliable information on a wide array of little-known topics." "The encyclopedia's numerous scholarly essays explore motivation and action in the tales, manuscript traditions, popular culture, film adaptations, modern Arabic literature, and other broad areas of inquiry. Its more than 800 A-Z entries cover a wide range of subjects from Ali the Cairene and James Joyce to mad lovers and wine. Incorporating original unpublished research, the book is a valuable resource for scholars, educators, students, and all libraries."--Jacket.
