This series offers a close focus on the often-neglected history of Central and West Asia in the first millennium AD. While late antique and early medieval periods in Europe and the Near East have long been the subject of scholarly study, until now relatively little attention has been paid to the regions further east — namely Sasanian and Post-Sasanian Iran and Iraq, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. Taking this geographical expanse as its focus, this timely series aims to address the imbalance in scholarship by placing a spotlight on Central and West Asia during the 'long' first millennium, from the turn of the first century to c. AD 1000 and beyond, up to the advent of the Mongols. Proposals are invited for both monographs and thematic edited collections that explore the history, material culture, and society of this region during the Late Antique and early Islamic period, with the aim of driving forward research in this region and bringing results to a new and international audience.
