Chase F. Robinson




Religious thinkers, political leaders, law-makers, writers and philosophers have shaped the 1,400-year-long development of the world's second-largest religion. But who were these people? What do we know of their lives, and the ways in which they influenced their societies?


Chase F. Robinson draws on the long tradition in Muslim scholarship of commemorating in writing the biographies of notable figures, weaving these ambitious lives together to create a rich narrative of early Islamic civilisation, from the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century to the era of the world-conqueror Timur and the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II in the fifteenth.


An illumninating read for anyone interested in learning more about this often misunderstood civilisation, this book creates a vivid picture of life in all arenas of the pre-modern Islamic world.
