A History of the Muslim World to 1405: The Making of a Civilization by Vernon O. Egger

Muslims first appeared in the early seventh century as members of a persecuted religious movement in a sun-baked town in Arabia. Within a century, their descendants were ruling a vast territory that extended from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indus River valley in modern Pakistan. This region became the arena for a new cultural experiment in which Muslim scholars and creative artists synthesized and reworked the legacy of Rome, Greece, Iran, and India into a new civilization.

A History of the Muslim World to 1405 traces the development of this civilization from the career of the Prophet Muhammad to the death of the Mongol emperor Timur Lang. Coverage includes the unification of the Dar a1-Islam (the territory ruled by Muslims), the fragmentation into various religious and political groups including the Shi'ite and Sunni, and the series of catastrophes in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries that threatened to destroy the civilization.


Balanced coverage of the Muslim world encompassing the region from the Iberian Peninsula to South Asia.

Detailed accounts of all cultures including major Shi'ite groups and the Sunni community.

Primary sources.

Numerous maps and photographs featuring a special four-color art insert.

Glossary, charts, and timelines.
