From the birth of the prophet Muhammad to the independence of post-Soviet Muslim states in Central Asia, this accessible and informative atlas explains the historical evolution of Islamic societies. Short essays cover a wide variety of themes, including the central roles played by sharia (divine law) and fiqh (jurisprudence), philosophy, arts and architecture, the Muslim city, trade, commerce and manufacturing, marriage and family life, tribal distributions, kinship and dynastic power, ritual and devotional practices, Sufism, modernist and reformist trends, the European domination of the Islamic world, the rise of the modern national state, oil exports and arms imports, and Muslim populations in non-Muslim countries, including the United States.
Lucid and inviting full-color maps chronicle the changing internal and external boundaries of the Islamic world, showing the principal trade routes through which goods, customs, and ideas spread. Rich in narrative and visual detail, this timely atlas is an indispensable resource to anyone interested in world history and religion.
