"Lindsay gives an excellent overview of the medieval Islamic world.
Intended for an audience with little or no background on this topic, the book offers a thorough introduction to the beginnings of Islam, its history up to the year 1300, and material on a wide range of other topics, e.g., warfare, social practices, entertainment, and geography...Numerous maps, photographs, and illustrations are spread throughout the text...This book will be very valuable to history students and anyone interested in learning about the faith and practices of Muslims.
Highly recommended." -- Choice
