Publisher Comments:

Thirty-five years after its original publication, this book still stands as the most valuable introduction to Sufism, the main form of Islamic mysticism. This edition brings to a new generation of readers Annemarie Schimmel's historical treatment of the transnational phenomenon of Sufism, from its beginnings through the nineteenth century. In the foreword, Carl Ernst comments on the continuing vitality of Schimmel's book and the advances in the study of Sufism since the work first appeared.
