    Abd al-Aziz Duri was a pioneering scholar whose work emphasized the economic dimension of Arab-Islamic history. In Early Islamic Institutions he analyses the ways in which fiscal policies, such as land tax and the tax on non-Muslim populations, were supported by sophisticated systems of administration and tax collection during the period when the Islamic world was expanding rapidly and establishing itself as a lasting force in world history.
