Details: Product Description Beginning in the world of late antiquity and the pre-Islamic period, the book takes the reader through Islam’s formative era and early development in the Arabian Peninsula, the rise and decline of major Muslim dynasties and finally into its place in the modern world. Lavishly illustrated and written in an accessible style, Islam: An Illustrated Journey tells the story of Islam, a faith that is today practised by more than a billion people and is the fastest growing religion in the world. The book contains a multitude of images, graphics, maps and charts, features many of the masterpieces of art, architecture and literature produced by Muslims along with a detailed bibliography, and will appeal to both general audiences and enthusiasts of Islamic societies and cultures and world civilizations. Review The text by Farhad Daftary and Zulfikar Hirji provides an accessible, largely even-handed account […] Only the most diligent readers will be able to keep their eyes fixed on the text, however. This is primarily a book of illustrations, and they are stunning. [...] Readers of all types, whatever their views on the divine, will find plenty to marvel at in these splendid pages. ― The Times Literary Supplement 02/04/2020 About the Author Farhad Daftary is co-director and head of the Department of Academic Research and Publications at the Institute of Ismaili Studies. An authority in Shi'i studies, with special reference to its Ismaili tradition, Dr. Daftary has published and lectured widely in the field of Islamic studies. Zulfikar Hirji is an Anthropologist and Social Historian of Muslim Societies and Cultures. He is currently Associate Professor of Anthropology at York University, Toronto.
