From the Publisher“Zeitlin’s approach is novel and intriguing.”
Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
"This book will be of value to serious students of Islamic history as well as educated readers generally. Both groups will be well able to navigate the historical and historiographical landscapes of the rise of Islam – with the foundational qualities that enabled it to develop into a world religion. The pursuit of certainty in discerning and understanding Muhammad’s historical biography and the rise of his religious movement is ongoing, and Irving Zeitlin has provided a clear, balanced, and plausible account using traditional sources and modern scholarly theories and interpretations."
Frederick M. Denny, University of Colorado at Boulder
"It is very important for Muslims and non-Muslims alike to understand the importance of the Prophet Muhammad because he is so central to Islam. The Historical Muhammad contributes significantly to the discussion of the life of the Prophet, a subject highly relevant to our time."
