This book is about a barber, Shihab al-Din Ahmad Ibn Budayr, who shaved and coiffed, and probably circumcised and healed, in Damascus in the 18th century. The barber may have been a "nobody," but he wrote a history book, a record of the events that took place in his city during his lifetime. Dana Sajdi investigates the significance of this book, and in examining the life and work of Ibn Budayr, uncovers the emergence of a larger trend of history writing by unusual authors—people outside the learned establishment—and a new phenomenon: nouveau literacy. The Barber of Damascus offers the first full-length microhistory of an individual commoner in Ottoman and Islamic history. Contributing to Ottoman popular history, Arabic historiography, and the little-studied cultural history of the 18th century Levant, the volume also examines the reception of the barber's book a century later to explore connections between the 18th and the late 19th centuries and illuminates new paths leading to the Nahda, the Arab Renaissance.

A French courtier, secret agent, libertine and adventurer, Beaumarchais (1732-99) was also author of two sparkling plays about the scoundrelly valet Figaro - triumphant successes that were used as the basis of operas by Mozart and Rossini. A highly engaging comedy of intrigue, The Barber of Seville portrays the resourceful Figaro foiling a jealous old man's attempts to keep his beautiful ward from her lover. And The Marriage of Figaro - condemned by Louis XVI for its daring satire of nobility and privilege - depicts a master and servant set in opposition by their desire for the same woman. With characteristic lightness of touch, Beaumarchais created an audacious farce of disguise and mistaken identity that balances wit, frivolity and seriousness in equal measure.

***See also THE BARBERSHOP SEVEN - the collected Barney Thomson novels*** In Blackmuir Wood, above the Victorian Spa village of Strathpeffer, sixteen miles west of Inverness, in the Highlands of Scotland, four American students are found with their throats slit. Worse, each has been given a chilling new haircut. The FBI arrive, but too late to prevent another terrible murder, and into town strolls everybody's favourite accidental death-junkie barber, Barney Thomson, looking for a short back and sides and a different hair colour. THE FACE OF DEATH is a 17000-word Barney Thomson novella that takes place after the events of THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT (Barney Thomson book 2). However, knowledge of the events of the first two Barney novels is not necessary to enjoy THE FACE OF DEATH. Praise for THE LONG MIDNIGHT OF BARNEY THOMSON (book 1) "This chilling black comedy unfolds at dizzying speed... an impressive debut novel." - Sunday Mirror "The plot, Russian literature fans, is a modern spin on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. The bloody ending, movie buffs, is pure Reservoir Dogs." - The Mirror "This is pitch-black comedy spun from the finest writing. Fantastic plot, unforgettable scenes and plenty of twisted belly laughs." - New Woman Praise for THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT (book 2): "A mad, macabre romp with surreal characters and cutting black humour." - The Sunday Mirror "Gloriously over the top, very bloody and very, very funny." - Daily Telegraph "A novel which is both genuinely silly and a fun read." - The Scotsman "A flawless follow-up to an impressive debut, this is extremely well-written, highly amusing and completely unpredictable in its outrageous plot twists and turns." - The List "Lindsay's burlesque thrills offer no sex, no drugs, no desperation to be cool. Just straightforward adult story; fantastic plot, classic timing and gleeful delight in the grotesque. With more talent than Irvine Welsh could dream of, Lindsay has crafted a macabre masterpiece where content lives up to style." - What's On THE BARNEY THOMSON novels in order: #1 THE LONG MIDNIGHT OF BARNEY THOMSON #2 THE BARBER SURGEON'S HAIRSHIRT (aka THE CUTTING EDGE OF BARNEY THOMSON) #3 MURDERERS ANONYMOUS (aka A PRAYER FOR BARNEY THOMSON) #4 THE RESURRECTION OF BARNEY THOMSON (aka THE KING WAS IN HIS COUNTING HOUSE) #5 THE LAST FISH SUPPER #6 THE HAUNTING OF BARNEY THOMSON #7 THE FINAL CUT
