A full-scale single-volume history of the Arabic-speaking peoples of the Islamic world, begins with Islam's rise in the 7th century and carries the rich and imposing story of Arab civilization to the late 1980s. The author moves easily from mosque to marketplace, from sultan to imam , from nomad to city-dweller, from Mohammed to Sadat. He dwells on the Ottoman Empire and on the European colonialism that followed, and concludes with a discussion of the modern resurgence of Islam that offers hope to thousands of Muslims and appears so threatening to Westerners.
