Editorial Review
Not a religious text designed to either celebrate or denigrate Islam, this classic biography looks at Mohammed as a towering figure of culture and politics, a man who achieved the extraordinary: uniting disparate Arab tribes into more cohesive whole. Author DAVID S. MARGOLIOUTH (1858-1940), a professor of Arabic at Oxford University, worked from primary Arabic texts and omitted "all anecdotes that are obviously or most probably fabulous," resulting in a clear-headed history of a highly contentious moment in time. It remains an important work for anyone wishing to understand the roots of one of the most intractable sociopolitical divides-between East and West, Muslim and Christian-still haunting the world today. __________________________ ALSO FROM COSIMO Margoliouth's The Early Development of Mohammedanism
