Meccan trade and the rise of Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

27 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patricia Crone reassesses one of the most widely accepted dogmas in contemporary accounts of the beginnings of Islam, the supposition that Mecca was a trading center thriving on the export of aromatic spices to the Mediterranean. Pointing out that the conventional opinion is based on classical accounts of the trade between south Arabia and the Mediterranean some 600 years earlier than the age of Muhammad, Dr. Crone argues that the land route described in these records was short-lived and that the Muslim sources make no mention of such goods. In addition to changing our view of the role of trade, the author reexamines the evidence for the religious status of pre-Islamic Mecca and seeks to elucidate the nature of the sources on which we should reconstruct our picture of the birth of the new religion in Arabia."
Pre-industrial societies by Patricia Crone( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, historian Patricia Crone offers a blueprint for a world now lost, outlining the common features of Islamic, Indian, Chinese and pre-Medieval European societies. The book concentrates on such issues as the role of politics and religion; how communities developed social hierarchies; and the relationship between the individual and the state. Crone provides a lively and accessible explanation of how human society was organized in the 5000 years prior to the Industrial Revolution
God's rule : government and Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to examine the medieval Muslim answers to questions crucial to any Western understanding of Middle Eastern politics today, such as why states are necessary, what functions they are meant to fulfill, and whether or why they must be based on religious law." "Crone makes Islamic political thought accessible by relating it to the contexts in which it was formulated, analyzing it in terms familiar to today's reader and, where possible, comparing it with both medieval European and later political thought. By examining the ideological point of departure for medieval Islamic political thought, Crone provides an invaluable foundation for a better understanding of contemporary Middle Eastern politics and current world events."--Jacket
God's caliph : religious authority in the first centuries of Islam by Patricia Crone( Book )

19 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new study examines how religious authority was distributed in early Islam. It argues the case that, as in Shi'ism, it was concentrated in the head of state, rather than dispersed among learned laymen as in Sunnism. Originally the caliph was both head of state and ultimate source of religious law; the Sunni pattern represents the outcome of a conflict between the caliph and early scholars who, as spokesmen of the community, assumed religious leadership for themselves. Many Islamicists have assumed the Shi'ite concept of the imamate to be a deviant development. In contrast, this book argues that it is an archaism preserving the concept of religious authority with which all Muslims began."

"In 2012, the year 1433 of the Muslim calendar, the Islamic population throughout the world was estimated at approximately a billion and a half, representing about one-fifth of humanity. In geographical terms, Islam occupies the center of the world, stretching like a big belt across the globe from east to west."--Page vii

The Epistle of Salim ibn Dhakwān by Sālim ibn Dhakwān( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Arabic and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The epistle ascribed to Salim Ibn Dhakwan is a tract against 'wrong' doctrines regarding the classification and treatment of opponents. Written by an Ibadi before AD 800 and taking issue with both Kharijite extremists and Murji'ites, it was brought to the attention of Western Islamicists in the early 1970s by Amr Khalifa Ennami, and is here edited, translated, and discussed in full for the first time." "The early centuries of Islamic religious thought have become a dynamic field in the last few years, and there is renewed interest in the attempt to use the early literature of the Muslim sects as windows onto the wider scene of doctrinal discussion in the period before the mainstream tradition becomes plentiful. In addition to making available a new source, this study seeks to open up the Ibadi tradition for future research on early Islamic thought, partly by making heavy use of Ibadi sources in its interpretation of Salim's epistle and partly by offering systematic information about the Ibadi figures and literary works involved in the Appendices and Bibliography."--Jacket
