This latest addition to the Understanding World History series gives a thorough, well-researched
background of Islam, from the birth and youth of Muhammad and his call from God to the religion’s
golden age (750–1258 CE). The introductory time line of important events during the rise of Islam sets the
stage for events discussed in the text. The straightforward prose is dense yet readable. Each chapter is
separated by headings and includes two to three text boxes and a similar number of colored illustrations,
all set upon an attractive parchment background. Of particular interest are the chapters on Muhammad’s
personal life and his faith, though other chapters take on the expansion of Islam, its legacy, and more.
Detailed chapter source notes and an extensive list of additional books and websites give young
researchers alternate access points to complete their projects on Muhammad or Islam—hot topics that
show no signs of cooling down.
