This unique reference is a comprehensive encyclopedia dedicated to the institutions, religion, politics, and culture in Muslim societies throughout the world. Beginning coverage in the sixth century and extending it to the present day, the Encyclopedia covers Muslims in the Arab heartland as well as South and Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

An invaluable resource, The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World offers extensive comparative and systematic analyses of Islamic beliefs, institutions, movements, practices, and peoples on an international scale. The articles range from brief 500-word essays to major interpretive and synthetic treatment of topics such as the Islamic state, pilgrimage, law, marriage, and foreign relations. Related entries cover areas of general interest such as social and political movements, women, Muslim minorities, human rights, Islam in the West, and interreligious affairs. And prominent figures that had a lasting impact on Islam are explored including Muhammad, Aga Khan, Malcolm X, Muhammad Iqbal, 'Ali Shari 'ati, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Hasan al-Turabi.

About the Author:


John L. Esposito is Professor of Religion and International Affairs and Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University. A past president of the Middle East Studies Association, he is the author of numerous books on the Muslim world, and is the preeminent Islamic Studies scholar.

From Booklist:

The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World is an expansion of an earlier work with a very similar title, The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Modern Islamic World, published in 1995. While the earlier work sought to provide reliable information on modern Muslim politics and societies, this new set includes not only the majority of entries from its predecessor “but also extensive coverage of religious and historical background extending back to the beginnings of Islam.” The religious dimensions of Islam are described in carryover articles on the Pillars of Islam and Theology along with new entries for Heaven, Hell, and Mary, mother of Jesus, who holds a position of esteem in Islam. Important historical figures, such as Abu Bakr, successor to the Prophet; the mystic Husayn ibn Mansur al-Hallaj; and the Ottoman caliph Sulayman the Magnificent, have been added. There is an interesting new survey article on Homosexuality. Important historical events, such as Camel, Battle of the and the Seyh Said rebellion, are also part of the new content. New material isn’t limited to the religious or historical. There are new entries for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the current president of Iran; Benazir Bhutto, the assassinated prime minister of Pakistan; September 11th; Suicide bombings; Taliban; and Talibanization. And many of the entries from the older work have been updated, including the survey on Christianity and Islam, the entry for Hamas, and the article describing Islamic studies. The preface claims that this new work “fills the demand for accurate, concise, and accessible information on Islam and the Islamic world,” and one would be hard-pressed to argue with that. So, too, does another recent set with a confusingly similar title, namely, the Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim World (Macmillan, 2004). Although there is a tremendous amount of overlap, both works also complement each other rather well. Subscribers to Oxford Islamic Studies Online should note that the database now includes the material in the print Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World, which is recommended for academic and large public libraries. --Christopher McConnell
