For centuries Islam, as a universal religion, was among the world's greatest, enlightened and creative cultural force as well as a powerful and splendid civilisation. In his thoughtful and comprehensive book, Dzavid Haveric, explores the rise and further development of the Islamic civilisation. Using a multidisciplinary approach, especially historical and historiographical, the author includes a wide-range of sources with his focal point on Islamic civilisation. This cultural history surveys the magnificent discoveries and achievements of the Muslims from the 7th to the 15th centuries. The book demonstrates that the Muslim discoveries of various parts of the globe, particularly during the Golden Age of Islamic civilisation, played an important part in history.By exploring Islamic civilisation within the plurality of civilisations this work puts forward a very distinct point of view. The author presents a balanced look at the cultural-religious diversity and interaction of civilisations. It outlines the interaction of Islamic civilisation with various ancient civilisations and other civilisations that also emerged or flourished. In his observations, the author illuminates the Islamic contribution to world history and also it includes many values and the riches of different civilisations, beliefs and cultures of the world. This work is a treasure of fascinating facts and a source of important information. It is also a blend of scholarship and dedication and a timely contribution to Islamic cultural history, comparative civilisations, multi-faith relations and cosmopolitanism.
