Book News Annotation:

Largely concentrating on influential individuals, institutions, and groups of people within Islam, Adamec (Middle Eastern studies, U. of Arizona) offers entries that discuss important historical information about Islam from its founding in the (Christian) year 610 to the current time. While brief biographies form the bulk of the material, there are also entries on philosophical and legal concepts, important geographical sites, and other pertinent information. Adamec includes a chronology of Islam that lists important events and the development of philosophical and political movements. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Articles describe the major sects, schools of theology, and jurisprudence, as well as aspects of Islamic culture. Together, this book represents a brief introduction to the field of Islamic studies.
