    schema:reviewBody "This work aims to present to the reader a narrative of the several threads of Islamic history over a period of more than 13 centuries, in an area extending from Spain and Morocco to South East Asia. In view of this enormous perspective and the fact that only two volumes must fulfil the task, the editors are naturally explicit about the book's limitations: it is intended primarily for general readers of history, for students of history, and particularly for students of Oriental disciplines (I, p. ix). While not claiming to present any exhaustive definitive account, the editors have shown a keen awareness of the shortcomings and gaps in much of the secondary material previously recommended to students and general readers, and have tried 'to offer an authoritative guide to the state of knowledge at the present day, and to provide a sound foundation on which to build' (I, p. xviii). -- From http://www.jstor.org (Nov. 25, 2016)." ;
