Summary: Maxime Rodinson's Muhammad has long been regarded as one of the touchstones of scholarship on the founder of Islam. Thirty years after its first publication in English, it remains the definitive introduction to the Prophet's life. Drawing on wide-ranging scholarship and imaginative insight into the Prophet's personality, family, background, and wider society, Rodinson's Muhammad offers a vivid account of how he spread the word of Islam, created a sect and state, and defeated his enemies, establishing the first great Muslim military power -- a power that was soon to control territory stretching all the way from the Pyrenees to the borders of China. For anyone who wants to understand the historical roots of one of the world's great religions, Rodinson's Muhammad provides the ideal guide to a fascinating and timely subject.

Inhaltsangabe: This is an account of Mohammad's life and is also the study of the impact of an ideology upon a society. Seventh century Arabia, although fragmented and in many respects primitive, was moving towards a settled economy. The ideology of Islam - calling for submission to the will of God - moulded this nation into unity and into a conquering force which, within a hundred years of Mohammad's death, subdued an area stretching from the Pyrenees to the borders of China.
Inhaltsangabe: This volume provides an introduction to the life and message of the Prophet Muhammad, as well as a study of the effects of Islam - a religion that succeeded in yoking the most antagonistic tribes and peoples together under a common purpose, transforming Arabia from a nomadic to a settled society. This edition is published with a new prologue by the author, a scholar of Islamic history and society.
