Islam, Arabs, and the Intelligent World of the Jinn

Islam, Arabs, and the Intelligent World of the Jinn by Amira El-Zein

A discussion of jinn.

What is taught in Islam, and believed in folklore. Connections with pre-Islamic beliefs and analogs about the world. Their relations to and differences from angels. Divination, animals, human-jinn love matches, and poetry. Quite a bit of detail.
