This comprehensive, well-illustrated history of the Bahrain Islands fills a major gap in our knowledge of the archaeology of the Middle East. Home to the ancient civilizations of Dilmun and Tylos, Bahrain was one of the most significant cultural areas in the region and its pre-eminence as a trading center brought it enormous wealth, reflected in the buildings and artifacts that have been excavated in recent years. Many of these objects and sites have never been published before and Traces of Paradise reveals an extraordinary range of materials.

A first part covers "General works", followed by three broad chronological sections (Prehistory - 4th Millennium B.C. / Late 4th Millennium - End 2nd Millennium B.C. / Late 2nd Millennium B.C. - 7th Century A.D.). Each of these periods is subdivided in (modern) political regions (Kuwait, Northeastern Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman). This second supplement contains 826 entries. An index of authors also is included.

For anyone, non-Muslim or Muslim, who wants to know how to approach, read, and understand the text of the Qur'an, How to Read the Qur'an offers a compact introduction and reader's guide. Using a chronological reading of the text according to the conclusions of modern scholarship, Carl W. Ernst offers a nontheological approach that treats the Qur'an as a historical text that unfolded over time, in dialogue with its audience, during the career of the Prophet Muhammad.
