Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

An auspicious beginning to a series that will include primary sources, anthologies, and classic and original interpretations relating to world history for the nonspecialist reader. Ghazzali (A.D. 1058-111) is one of the most important religious figures in Islamic history. The Alchemy, an introduction to the thought and practice of Sufism, was written late in a career noted for its synthesizing of mysticism and orthodox Sunni Islam. The collection of extracts is revised from Claud Field's 1910 translation of an Urdu abridgment of a Persian rescension of the original Arabic. No indedx.
