A sociopolitical historian of the early Islamic Near East, Gordon introduces high-school and undergraduate students to the early history of Islam, from the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad to the collapse of the Islamic Empire in the early 10th century. In a mixture of narrative and analysis of particular topics, he emphasizes the social and political aspects, and generally refers readers to fuller accounts for the teachings and practice of Islam.

Studies in Religion

The Rise of Islam is a concise, edifying and entertaining monograph. . . . [I] would recommend The Rise of Islam both to those who have a casual interest in the development of Islam and also to students who have begun studying Islamic history and want to read a work that presents the history in a flowing, colorful fashion.
