Founding Editor: Lawrence I. Conrad, University of Hamburg, Germany

The Formation of the Classical Islamic World is a library reference collection that makes available the most important articles and research papers in its subject. By reprinting together in thematically unified volumes material from a widespread range of sources, it constitutes a major new resource for libraries. The articles are selected not only for their current role in breaking new ground, but also for their place as seminal contributions to the formation of the field, and their utility in providing access to the subject for students and specialists in other fields.

Scholars from across the world, representing a range of methodologies and disciplines, have joined to collaborate on what is the most ambitious endeavour of its kind in the modern study of Islamic history. The collection will consist of 48 thematically ordered volumes, each containing a specially written introduction to the subject, a bibliographical guide and an index. All volumes are hardcover, cloth bound and printed on acid-free paper, to suit library needs. All articles not previously published in English have been specially translated for this series.
