86 Book Reviews / Journal of Early Modern History 13 (2009) 71-98 Amitai, Reuven, Th e Mongols in the Islamic Lands—Studies in the History of the Ilkhanate (London: Ashgate, Variorum Collected Studies: CS 873, 2007), xii + 358 pp., £65.00 (hardback), ISBN 9 780 75465 914 3. Th is volume of the Variorum Collected Studies contains a selection of 16 articles of the proliﬁ c scholar Reuven Amitai, Professor of Muslim His- tory at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Th ese articles, published between 1987 and 2005, focus on diﬀ erent aspects of Ilkhanid history and particularly on the 60 years of war (1260-1323) between the Ilkhanid dynasty and the Mamluk sultanate. Th is conﬂ ict is a topic to which Amitai has also devoted a monograph [ Mongols and Mamluks: Th e Mamluk-Ilkha- nid War, 1260-1281 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1995)]. Th e studies are solid scholarly work, making use of pro-Mongols sources (in Persian and Mongolian), of Christian sources (in Syriac and Arme- nian), but also of pro-Mamluk historiographical texts in Arabic, a rich source of information on the Ilkhans. Th e ﬁ rst part of the work (4 articles) is devoted to “Institutions and Historiography”.
