Hardcover (no d.j.)
Denise Dersin (ed). In the early 7th cent., the tribesmen of Arabia were preparing to make their mark on history. Under the unifying banner of their prophet, Muhammad, Arab warriors burst out of their homeland & took Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Egypt & Persia, territories all formerly ruled by the regionís 2 great powers, the Byzantine Empire & the Sassanian Empire of Persia. Within 100 yrs., Muhammadís followers carved out an empire that stretched from Spain to India. This book tells how Muhammad is said to have received his revelation from God, how the first Islamic community was established at Medina in Saudi Arabia, & how that small religious community transformed itself into a mighty political empire.
