The Cambridge illustrated history of the Islamic world( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of the period from the eighth to the eighteenth centuries, the Muslim world was dominant in terms both of geographical spread and creativity. Today Muslims account for one fifth of the world's population. Yet there is widespread misunderstanding in the West of what Islam really is. Francis Robinson and his team set out to address this paradox. Dismantling the western perception of Islam as a monolithic culture, they examine the economic basis of Muslim societies

The power of maps by Denis Wood( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume ventures into terrain where even the most sophisticated map fails to lead -- through the mapmaker's bias. Denis Wood shows how maps are not impartial reference objects, but rather instruments of communication, persuasion, and power. Like paintings, they express a point of view. By connecting us to a reality that could not exists in the absence of maps -- a world of property lines and voting rights, taxation districts and enterprise zones -- they embody and project the interests of their creators. Sampling the scope of maps available today, illustrations include Peter Gould's AIDS map, Tom Van Sant's map of the earth, U.S. Geological Survey maps, and a child's drawing of the world. - Back cover

The Periplus of the Erythraean Sea by Flavius Arrianus( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Periplus furnishes a most interesting part of early commercial history. Its study enables us to have a glimpse of the first record of organized trading with the nations of the East, in vessels built and commanded by subjects of the Western world. The book was originally written in the form of notes, which has been maintained in the present translations and are of great interest giving as they do in exhaustive survey of the international trade between the great empires of Rome, Parthia, India and China together with a collection of facts touching the early trade of a number of other countries of much interest. The International trade of the modern world is everyday coming more and more under exact laws of demand and supply and in this perspective study of Periplus is of added importance
