Trade and Commerce in the Early Islamic World

“Trade and Commerce explains how important trade was in the growth and expansion of Islam. Not only was Islam exported, but new ideas came in with the caravans. 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, Booklistonline.com, 08/12
