About the Authors
  • The New Cambridge History of Islam is a comprehensive history of Islamic civilization, tracing its development from its beginnings in seventh-century Arabia to its wide and varied presence in the globalised world of today. The six volumes reflect the geographical distribution and the cultural, social and religious diversity of the peoples of the Muslim world. Four volumes cover historical developments and two are devoted to themes that cut across geographical and chronological divisions, ranging from social, political and economic relations to the arts, literature and learning. Each volume's introduction sets the scene for the ensuing chapters and examines relationships with adjacent civilizations. Written by a team combining established authorities and rising scholars in the field, this will be the standard reference for students, scholars and all those with enquiring minds for years to come.

    • A unique and broad ranging six-volume history of Islam from its beginnings to the present
    • Written by an international team of established authorities and rising scholars in the field
    • The volumes encompass the cultural, social, political, religious and economic history of Islam

    “The appearance of this multi-volume work really is a landmark event, deserving all the public attention and acclamation it can get...this is not a work for academic libraries alone. Every good public library should have it.” -- Noel Malcolm, The Telegraph
