This second volume examines the religion and structure of Islamic society. Bernard Lewis draws on a broad range of Islamic literature, including books on religious sects, politics and economics, philosophy and science, travel, biography and literary works, and even bureaucratic records from such disparate sources as the postal service and the judiciary. Comprehensive and cogently translated, these documents bring into sharp focus aspects of a world long neglected by Western historians.

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1987. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. These two volumes comprise a documentary history of Islam, from the advent of the prophet Muhammad to the capture of Constantinople by Sultan Mehmed, the Conqueror. They are concerned with a period that extends from the beginning of the seventh century to 1453; with a region that expands from western Arabia to embrace the Middle East and North Africa, as well as parts of Asia, of tropical Africa, and southern and eastern Europe; with peoples and states which, amid many diversities, shared a common acceptance of the faith and law of Islam and professed to live by them; and, finally, with the civilization they created. Throughout, Professor Lewis has translated from original sources and documents - works that present the sweeping civilization of Islam in all its vastness and glory. These volumes are now made available in paperback once again. Seller Inventory # APC9780195050882
