This second volume examines the religion and structure of Islamic society. Bernard Lewis draws on a broad range of Islamic literature, including books on religious sects, politics and economics, philosophy and science, travel, biography and literary works, and even bureaucratic records from such disparate sources as the postal service and the judiciary. Comprehensive and cogently translated, these documents bring into sharp focus aspects of a world long neglected by Western historians.

"Lewis...is an illuminating, authoritative guide. This collection supplies a vital part of world history long lacking in Western scholarship on this period."--Christian Science Monitor "Excellent companion to any textbook on Islamic history."--Mona Russell, MIT
