This unique publication provides an overview of Islamic history from its inception up to the beginning of the twentieth century. An Historical Atlas of Islam/Atlas Historique de l’Islam is divided into ten sections: - The Early Muslim Earth and Sky - The Extension of the Muslim World - The Arabian Peninsula - Egypt and the Fertile Crescent - Iran and Transoxania - The Caucasus - Anatolia and the Balkans - Al-Andalus (Spain and Portugal) and al-Maghrib - India and the Indian Ocean - The Far East Throughout these sections a broad variety of topics is being covered. From The Arabian Peninsula in the time of the Hijra to al-Andalus and al-Maghrib: The Muslim Conquest, and from Medieval Islamic Egypt to Islam in China. About one third of the maps in this second edition are new and include - Environments and Mineral Resources of the Islamic World - Yemen and the Hadramaut - The Arabian Peninsula in Islamic Times - Iran under the Mongols; and under the Savafid and Qajar Dynasties - The Fertile Crescent - Caucasus in the Early Middle Ages - The Maghrib in the Age of Almoravids & Almohads - and many other regional maps. Other maps in this edition, already available in the first edition, have been edited to make them even more consistent and accurate, e.g. - The Muslim World - Arabia - Byzantine Anatolia - Saljuq Anatolia - Spain and the Mahgrib A substantial number of new city maps has also been added to the second edition of An Historical Atlas of Islam/Atlas Historique de l’Islam, including - Sanaa - Damascus - Aleppo - Mosul - Baghdad - Cairo - Isfahan - Samarkand - Cordoba - Granada - Delhi - and many others. The maps are intended to give historians of urban development an idea of the shape and structure of the cities and to assist them in locating city gates, walls and major monuments as they are referred to in historical texts. To achieve this, the maps reflect the situation before the changes of the twentieth century. An Historical Atlas of Islam/Atlas Historique de l’Islam also includes a CD-ROM with all maps from the printed version. A user friendly navigation function, using an alphabetical index of places and regions guarantees quick and efficient access to the maps.
