Review:

'a well ordered survey... necessary for the student of Islamic history... As to Humphreys' wider message, it is not only timely but expressed with great subtlety and clarity.' --Times Literary Supplement

'Without doubt this gem of a book needs to be read, consulted and utilized as a reference-work by every student of Islamic history.' --Muslim World Book Review

From the Back Cover:

"This book is an extremely judicious stock-taking' of scholarship in the field of medieval Islamic history, especially valuable for the way it examines--and forces us to reconsider--the assumptions on which previous scholarship has been based.... Students of Islamic studies will find it indispensable."--Fred M. Donner, University of Chicago
