Islam: A Thousand Years of Faith and Power Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In its first thousand years — from the revelations to Muhammad in the seventh century to the great Islamic empires of the sixteenth — Islamic civilization flourished. While Europeans suffered through the Dark Ages, Muslims in such cities as Jerusalem, Damascus, Alexandria, Fez, Tunis, Cairo, and Baghdad made remarkable advances in philosophy, science, medicine, literature, and art. This engrossing and accessible book explores the first millennium of Islamic culture, shattering stereotypes and enlightening readers about the events and achievements that have shaped contemporary Islamic civilization.

Synopsis:

Covers the first one thousand years of Islamic history and culture, from the revelation of Muhammad to the Islamic empires.
