From the Publisher
"The text is accessible to the general reader, and uniquely Muslim terms are explained. Some entries contain sidebars encouraging readers to further explore the topic. This is an excellent reference for those wanting to explore how the Prophet Muhammad relates to specific themes or for those interested in the diversity of ways in which the prophet was (and continues to be) invoked since the advent of Islam."
"Recent world events have fueled public interest in all things Islam, spurring even more academic interest. Hence, a publication that tries to compile how the Prophet Muhammad relates to other areas is a welcomed reference. This two-volume set would be an excellent reference for high school students and general readers wanting to explore how the Prophet Muhammad relates to the diverse areas of study since the advent of Islam."
"This scholarly and comprehensive resource is fairly unusual in its focus on Muhammad and his legacy. Although there are many great works on Islam, this is the only one that concentrates particularly on the prophet and his influence."
"The introduction is an excellent digest of issues encountered when treating not just a man but also a legacy; nonspecialists will find this an especially useful orientation. . . . Recommended."
