G. R. Hawting - Translator

This volume 17 of al-Tabari's great 40-volume history of the Arabs treats the first Civil War, 656-661.

Many of the events treated in this volume have become part of the historical consciousness of Muslims.

Although this di...(Read More)

'Abbasid Authority Affirmed: The Early Years of al-Mansur A.D. 753-763/A.H. 136-145
Jane Dammen McAuliffe - Translator

The initial years (126-145) of al-Mansur's reign presented several significant challenges to nascent Abbasid hegemony, and the resulting confrontations constitute the central focus of this section of Tabari's Tarikh. After Abu Jafar succeeded his brother Abu al-Abbas as caliph, the second of the Abbasid dynasty, he moved against his recalcitrant uncle, Abdallah b. Ali, and against the potential threat that he perceived in the person of t...(Read More)
 
 
Muhammad and the Origins of Islam
Muhammad and the Origins of Islam (April 1994)
F. E. Peters - Author

An inquiry into the religious environment of the person Muslims hail as the "Envoy of God" and an attempt to trace his progress along the path from paganism to that distinctive form of monotheism called Islam.

"Peters writes very well. The scholarship is excellent, and the book fills a gap in the available material. There are several lives of the Prophet, but none that does what this one does. Most are wr...(Read More)

G. Rex Smith - Translator

This volume covers the years 21-23/641-43 of the caliphate of 'Umar b. al-Khattab.

The volume begins with the caliphal order to the Muslim troops, recently victorious at the famous battle of Nihawand in 21/641, to pen...(Read More)
 
 
The Political Dimensions of Religion
The Political Dimensions of Religion (August 1993)
Saïd Amir Arjomand - Editor

"The only other book that deals with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim fundamentalism is the book by Bruce Lawrence. It does not have the range of Arjomand's book." -- Hamid Algar, University of California, Berkeley

"In this book, Said Amir Arjomand has brought together a number of brilliant essays, each addressing a particular aspect of that beguiling force of attraction that relentlessly keeps religion and politics in close proximity--i...(Read More)

The Conquest of Arabia: The Riddah Wars A.D. 632-633/A.H. 11
Fred M. Donner - Translator

Volume X of al-Tabari's massive chronicle is devoted to two main subjects. The first is the selection of Abu Bakr as the first caliph or successor to the Prophet Muh'ammad following the Prophet's death in 632 C.E. This section of the History reveals some of the inner divisions that existed within the early Muslim community, and sheds light on the interests and motivations of various parties in the debates that led up to Abu Bakr's acclamation...(Read More)

The History of al-Tabari Vol. 11 (April 1993)
The Challenge to the Empires A.D. 633-635/A.H. 12-13
Khalid Yahya Blankinship - Translator

Although this volume deals with the part of al-Tabari's History covering the years 12 and 13 (633-35), in the caliphates of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq and 'Umar b. al-Khattab, the narratives contained in it, which are lengthy and detailed, are concerned with the first Muslim conquests in Iraq and Syria. Although it might be expected, therefore, that this volume would be a basic source for these conquests, the actual value of the bulk of the reported traditi...(Read More)
