He organized a ground-break- introduction 5 ing conference at Princeton and edited its proceedings, The Islamic Middle East, 700-1900: Studies in Economic and Social History (1981). Earlier he had co-edited with European historians Harry Miskimin and David Herlihy the volume The Medieval City (1977), and later, along with co-editor Haleh Esfandiari, he published The Economic Dimensions of Middle Eastern History: Essays in Honor of Charles Issawi (1990). His interest in the Jewish component in Arab society spawned another forward-looking conference, which led to the publication of Jews among Arabs: Contacts and Boundaries (1989), coedited with the present writer, and focusing on the modern period.
He also navigated the department through the choppy waters of the Middle East conflict, keeping it as immune as possible from the internecine hostility that mark the politics of so many other Middle East departments in the US and Europe.

Even prior to Stockholm, before he became identified with the liberal wing (Palestinian and Israeli alike) of the Middle East peace movement, he had weathered a storm of criticism at a conference on Jews and Arabs, in Spoleto, Italy, in 1978.

Under his leadership, moreover, the first chair in Jewish studies was established in the university, the Khedouri A. Zilkha Professorship of Jewish Civilization in the Near East, which he held until his retirement. In the mid-1980s he created, along with the present writer, the Princeton Geniza Project, which supports an online database of thousands of documents in Hebrew, Arabic, and Judaeo-Arabic from the Cairo Geniza that illuminate the social and economic life of Jews and Muslims in the high Middle Ages.
