Islam from the Pophet Muhammad to the Capture of Constantinople: Politics and War Volume 1
This is a documentary history of Islam from the advent of the prophet Muhammad to the capture of Constantinople by Sultan Mehmed, the Conqueror. It is concerned with a period that extends from the beginning of the seventh century to 1453; with a region that expands from western Arabia to embrace the Middle East and North Africa, as well as parts of Asia, of tropical Africa and southern and eastern Europe; with peoples and states which, amid many diversities, shared a common acceptance of the faith and law of Islam and professed to live by them; and, finally, with the civilization they created. The volumes are now once again made available in paperback.
