This volume, the second of a series that chronicles the most significant events in the dynamic spread of Islam, covers the period from 1500 through 1799. This era saw the spread of Islam to the Americas and the precipitous decline of the powerful Muslim states of the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal empires. Along with their religion, Muslims carried their culture, their goods, and their innovations to the far corners of the globe. Their contributions to Western civilization—such as new kinds of agriculture (irrigation, oranges, sugarcane, cotton), manufactured goods (satin, rugs, paper, perfumes), and technology (astrolabe, compass, lateen sail)—are set out in detail. The book is fully indexed, with a bibliography and 16 appendices.

Volume 1, which we reviewed in our April 15, 2000, issue, covered the years 570 to 1500. This volume picks up where that one left off and ends during a time when the great Muslim empires "would be in a precipitous decline." RBB
