Reviews
The Role of Religion in the Early Islamic World

“The Role of Religion tells the story of Muhammad’s early life as an orphan and how his later success as a merchant led to his being called by the angel Gabriel to “recite.” The rapid rise of Islam is discussed and the complicated history of the Sunni-Shia split becomes understandable thanks to Whiting’s clear text. This useful series is written with respect and appeal; boldfaced introductory paragraphs and plenty of sidebars draw readers in. The books are full of terrific examples of Islamic artwork (along with some contemporary photographs) that heighten and brighten the pages.” — Ilene Cooper, Booklinkonline.com, 08/12
