Makers of the Muslim World
This is the first series entirely devoted to the men and women who made the Muslim world what it is today, whether they were poets or scholars, artists or scientists, politicians or religious leaders. The series will cover the entire range of Islamic civilization in geographic and chronological terms. Intended as a guide for students, laymen, Islamicists in need of quick orientation, and academics in other fields, the books are written by experts in a clear and straightforward language and no prior knowledge of Islam or its history is required to follow them.
Series Editors: Professor Khaled El-Rouayheb (Harvard) and Professor Sabine Schmidtke (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton)
