Beginning in the 7th century, when Islam began to spread from the Arabian peninsula to the West, and working through to the modern day, this study effectively documents the history of Arab peoples and their relationship to the major turning points in world history. The expansion of Islamic monotheism to countries as widespread as Egypt, Syria, and Morocco is described, as is the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire, the expansion of European commerce during the 19th century, the surge of nationalism and statehood in the 20th century, the transformation of the Arab culture by modern influences, and the reaffirmation of the Islamic identity in recent decades.
