About

Overview

The Encyclopedia Of Islam And The Muslim World, 2nd Edition, is a two-volume set containing over 540 alphabetically-arranged entries designed to support students of religion and world history at the high school and undergraduate levels, as well as the general public. Rich historical content is partnered with coverage of the issues, countries, and people that are important in today’s world, allowing for an assessment of Islam’s influence on all areas of human activity throughout the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The revamped table of contents includes entries at the forefront of current events, including entries on oil, water rights, social media, and ISIS, as well as greatly expanded coverage of Islam in specific countries. Now in full color, this beautifully illustrated set features more than fifty percent new and revised entries, including more than 170 new articles, and more than 350 maps, charts, and photos.

Features and Benefits

  • This set features a unique balance of coverage of historical Islam as well as current issues, providing readers with a compact yet comprehensive view of Islam and the people who practice it.
  • This title fits neatly into a market that features both large and expensive sets or small one-volume titles that lack the coverage.
  • As a four-color title with more than 350 full-color images and maps, the Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim World is visually stunning; competitors are black-and-white with very few illustrations.
  • The encyclopedia's contributors include nearly 350 high-ranking scholars, a third of whom are based outside the United States.
  • Entries are fully cross-referenced, allowing readers to easily see connections between entries and facilitating further research.

What's New

  • 260 new and updated entries.
  • Now in full color.
  • More than 350 maps, charts, and photos, double the number of illustrations from the first edition.
  • The encyclopedia now includes sidebars (50 total) to provide additional information within the context of the larger topical entries.
  • Revamped table of contents includes entries at the forefront of current events, including entries on oil, water rights, social media, and ISIS, as well as greatly expanded coverage of Islam in specific countries.

Reviews

“Ambitious and accessible, this set will be essential in any academic library and is important for all institutions serving intellectually inquisitive populations.”

— Library Journal

“Recommended for academic and public libraries, particularly as an update to the previous edition.”

— Booklist

“Students and scholars of the Muslim world will find much useful information here. Academic and public libraries will benefit from having this set, as could high school libraries. Librarians might consider retaining the 2004 volumes as well.”

— American Reference Books Annual

"The source is greatly expanded in coverage from a decade earlier, providing new or updated articles for about half of the content, including over 350 color images and maps....These updates have improved an already stellar resource, and the second edition should be considered for any library collection serving beginning students. Summing Up: Recommended. High school students and lower-level undergraduates; general readers."

— C. A. Sproles
