The paper begins by describing Arwad and its role in history (6 pages). Arwad is a tiny, strategic island in the Mediterranean just off the the Syrian coast. It was conquered by Arabs under 'Uthman ibn Affan. The author first examines the Christian accounts of its conquest in the Syriac, Greek, and Arabic languages (27 pages). He then examines the accounts of the same event in Arab Muslim sources, argues that they are ahistorical, and studies how the accounts originated and developed (38 pages). Finally, on the basis of his findings, he discusses the nature of early Muslim historical tradition (15 pages). The article is well-documented, detailed, and well-written. A number of references are made to hadiths and some specific ones are discussed. -BS

A study of the chains of transmissions (isnad trees) of three hadiths. These hadiths are in the form of predictions of the future and only one of them appears in a canonical collection, namely in Abu Dawud's. They had been discussed in earlier works (Madelung, Aguade) and recognized as forgeries which could be dated fairly accurately based on extrinsic historical grounds. Cook investigates how this dating compares with the results one might obtain by following Schacht's methods. The paper begins with a review of the literature and some general reflections. -BS

Chapter 2, intended for the non-specialist, is relevant to the dating of traditions. Argues that hadiths should be taken as spurious unless proven otherwise. See especially p. 33 on Prophetic traditions on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas. Pages 93-96 deal with the restriction in Islamic law on testamentary disposition and the relevant hadiths. -BS
