Largely concentrating on influential individuals, institutions, and groups of people within Islam, Adamec (Middle Eastern studies, U. of Arizona) offers entries that discuss important historical information about Islam from its founding in the (Christian) year 610 to the current time. While brief biographies form the bulk of the material, there are also entries on philosophical and legal concepts, important geographical sites, and other pertinent information.
