    "This illustrated introduction to the history of the Islamic world offers a fresh approach to the subject. Told in six chapters, arranged both chronologically and thematically, it sheds light on Islamic culture from West Africa to Southeast Asia through art and artifacts, people and places, from its origins to the present day. From pre-Islamic works that provided a foundation for the arts of Islam, to masterpieces produced under the great empires, and objects that continue to be made today, this expansive survey traces the development of civilizations at the forefront of philosophical and scientific ideas, artistic and literary developments, and technological innovations, exploring a wealth of cultural treasures along the way."--Front dust jacket.
