Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combining a scholar's command of fact with a narrator's ease of style, the noted scholar H.A.R. Gibb presents an historic survey of Islam, from the days of the prophet, through the religion's spread in Asia and Africa, to its confrontation with the modern world.

Review:

"Gibb is a first-rate scholar who writes with imagination on a religion just about as widespread as Christianity." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"This classic remains one of the best introductions to Islam available." Valerie J. Hoffman, University of Illinois

Review:

"This highly reputed scholar offers us an historical synopsis of the inception and development of Islam." New Review of Books and Religion

Review:

"Still one of the clearest introductory texts for this Religion of Islam. Reflects a deep respect for this religion." Jonathan Brockopp, Bard College

Review:

"Gibb has done a great service to students of Islam as well as general readers in the field of the history of religions." Harvard Divinity School Bulletin
