Synopsis

This fully revised new edition comprehensively encompasses the religion, history and culture of the Islamic world in some 1300 entries. It covers aspects of religious belief, ritual, practices, prayer, significant political movements, spiritual and political leaders, art, architecture, sects, law, social institutions, history, ethnography, nations and states, languages, science, major cities and centres of learning. This edition includes a double-column page on the Taliban - where they arose from, why, and what they aspire to. Also included are several other organizations and movements which bear upon the crisis that has descended upon the world, West and East alike.
