Review:



"The essays and design of the work are excellent.... A splendid publication."
- Antioch Review
"Impressive pieces of scholarly writing ... in their very different ways, 'The Cambridge History of Islam,' 'Islam and the Arab World,' and 'The Genius of Arab Civilization' represent the heights of Orientalist scholarship."
- Edward W. Said, The New York Times Book Review
