This five-volume encyclopedia to be published by M.E. Sharpe is conceived with readers of
varying levels in mind. Though we invite and encourage scholars of varied disciplines to
contribute their knowledge and expertise, it is important to note that the intended audience of
the encyclopedia is not primarily or exclusively the academic professional. The encyclopedia
will of course aid in the advanced research of college students, but it will also be accessible to
high school students and other interested readers outside of the academic community.
Additionally, the editorial board of the Encyclopedia of the Middle East and South Asia is
particularly interested in demonstrating how the regions of the Middle East and South Asia
have interacted over time. It should also be noted that the encyclopedia is primarily focused
upon culture, history, religion, geography, and archeology. While politics, economics, and
current events will not be ignored, such topics will be subsumed under the broader discussion
of culture, history, geography, etc. Articles in the Encyclopedia will be organized according to
a five-level schema, with level one representing the most general or basic topics, and level five
representing the most specific.
