This richly illustrated book provides an unsurpassed overview of Islamic art and architecture from the seventh to the thirteenth centuries, a time of the formation of a new artistic culture and its first, medieval, flowering in the vast area from the Atlantic to India. Inspired by Ettinghausen and Grabar’s original text, this book has been completely rewritten and updated to take into account recent information and methodological advances. The volume focuses special attention on the development of numerous regional centers of art in Spain, North Africa, Egypt, Syria, Anatolia, Iraq, and Yemen, as well as the western and northeastern provinces of Iran. It traces the cultural and artistic evolution of such centers in the seminal early Islamic period and examines the wealth of different ways of creating a beautiful environment. The book approaches the arts with new classifications of architecture and architectural decoration, the art of the object, and the art of the book. With many new illustrations, often in color, this volume broadens the picture of Islamic artistic production and discusses objects in a wide range of media, including textiles, ceramics, metal, and wood. The book incorporates extensive accounts of the cultural contexts of the arts and defines the originality of each period. A final chapter explores the impact of Islamic art on the creativity of non-Muslims within the Islamic realm and in areas surrounding the Muslim world.

Review: "Islamic Civilization: History, Contributions, and Influence - A Compendium of Literature is a window to literature pertaining to Islamic history and Islam's contributions to knowledge and its influence in medieval Europe. The book is unique in that it presents more than mere annotations - it is a collection of "literature briefs," detailed and focused descriptions of each of the more than six hundred books and articles covered." "In the post-9/11 environment, there has been a surge of interest regarding all things Islamic. While much of the new literature is refreshingly positive, some works demonstrate a revival of centuries-old misconceptions about the Islamic world. Islamic Civilization examines that dichotomy through literature that the author has accumulated over the past twenty years in connection with other research endeavors concerning early Islamic social thought; thus, most references have a social-science/humanities orientation. Students, research scholars, and professionals will find this bibliography full of useful resources and a stimulus for further reading."--BOOK JACKET
