    Since its first publication the "Dictionary of Islam" has remained a standard work of reference on the subject. Designed for general readers with little or no knowledge of Islam, this superb encyclopaedic Dictionary provides vividly written and authoritative entries organized in an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format. What emerges is a highly informative look at the religious, political, and social spheres of the Islamic world, including political leaders, influential thinkers, poets, scientists, and writers. Other entries cover major political movements, groups and religious sects as well as terms from Islamic law, culture, and religion, key historical events, and important landmarks (such as Mecca and Medina), with detailed entries on the doctrines, rites, ceremonies and customs of Islam together with the technical and theological terms.
