About the Authors
  • Unparalleled in its range of topics and geographical scope, the sixth and final volume of The New Cambridge History of Islam provides a comprehensive overview of Muslim culture and society since 1800. Robert Hefner's thought-provoking account of the political and intellectual transformation of the Muslim world introduces the volume, which proceeds with twenty-five essays by luminaries in their fields through a broad range of topics. These include developments in society and population, religious thought and Islamic law, Muslim views of modern politics and economics, education and the arts, cinema and new media. The essays, which highlight the diversity and richness of Islamic civilization, engage with regions outside the Middle East as well as within Islam's historic heartland. Narratives are clear and absorbing and will fascinate all those curious about the momentous changes that have taken place among the world's 1.4 billion Muslims in the last two centuries.

    • Its breadth of coverage and depth of scholarship enhance our understanding of the history, culture and diversity of modern Islam
    • Engages with regions throughout the Islamic world from the Middle East and Asia, through to Europe and the Americas
    • Provides state-of-the-field overviews of developments in population and society; religion and law; Muslim political and economic thought; the arts and learning
