This is an unabridged republication of a work first published in 1955 by the Bond Wheelwright Company, Portland, Maine, and cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed. Written by an archaeologist and historian of Islamic art, this work, enlivened by examples of Arab literature, poetry, fables, speeches, letters, and songs, presents an overview of the formative period of Muslim culture, covering the birth of Islam and the rise, decline, and fall of the caliphate, as well as the development of a modern mentality and the religion's evolution into specialized sects.
