The Bloomsbury Companion to Islamic Studies Hardback
Edited by Clinton Bennett
Part of the Bloomsbury Companions series
The Bloomsbury Companion to Islamic Studies is a comprehensive one volume reference guide to Islam and study in this area.
A team of leading international scholars - Muslim and non-Muslim - cover important aspects of study in the field, providing readers with a complete and accessible source of information to the wide range of methodologies and theoretical principles involved.
Presenting Islam as a variegated tradition, key essays from the contributors demonstrate how it is subject to different interpretations, with no single version privileged.
In this volume, Islam is treated as a lived experience, not only as theoretical ideal or textual tradition.
Featuring a series of indispensable research tools, including a substantial A-Z of key terms and concepts, chronology and a detailed list of resources, this is the essential reference guide for anyone working in Islamic Studies.
