An invaluable and comprehensive guide to the faith, history and politics of Islam.

Founded in the seventh century by the prophet Mohammed, Islam has now spread across the world and every culture. Exploring the beliefs, history and politics of Islam, The Britannica Guide to the Islamic World is a clear and unbiased reference resource, compiled by experts in the field. It provides an unbiased and clear-sighted guide to Islamic history, beliefs, scriptures and politics. It explores the role of Islam, past and present, in forming the contemporary world of literature, science, art, architecture, and scholarship.

The Guide reveals the role that Islam plays today including the conflict in the Middle East, the rise of Islamism, and the divisions between the Sunni and Shi-ite sects.

As the Islamic World becomes the focus of politicians and the media, it is more important than ever to have a reliable and accurate introduction to this controversial topic. The Britannica Guide to the Islamic World is introduced by Ziauddin Sardar.
