First published in 1970, The Cambridge History of Islam is the most comprehensive and ambitious collaborative survey of Islamic history and civilisation yet to appear in English. On publication it was welcomed as a work useful both for reference and reading, for the general reader, students and specialist alike. The History has now been reprinted, with corrections, and for ease of handling the original two hardcover volumes have each been divided into two separate paperbacks. Volume 1B covers the history of the central Islamic lands from 1918 to the 1960s.

' ... undoubtedly a very valuable and very much needed contribution to the field of Islamic studies. It is a thoroughly scholarly and often erudite presentation of the entire Muslim world that will be consulted by specialists and non-specialists for many years to come'. The Middle East Journal 'On the basis of length and scope, the History is the most comprehensive, and at the same time the most detailed study of Islam so far attempted, and ... it is likely to remain so for at least another generation.' Journal of the American Oriental Society
