Mandaeans and Other Marsh Arabs

Via Access to Mideast and Islamic Resources, I learned of the Marsh Arabs Heritage Project, which looks at the cultural, religious, and social life of the marshlands of Southern Iraq, including the Mandaeans, but also Muslims, Jews, Christians, Yezidis and others.

The pdf downloads appear not to have been added yet, but there is in essence an entire book online. Those interested in the people of that region and their heritage will find it interesting!
