Sea of the Caliphs

The Mediterranean in the Medieval Islamic World
Christophe Picard
Translated by Nicholas Elliott
"By shining a light on this obscure period, Picard brings a new
dimension to Braudel's Mediterranean, as a place where the voices
of Latins, Byzantines, and Muslims are integrated."
-Livres Hebdo
"In Sea of the Caliphs, Picard shows that the Mediterranean, long
considered marginal to Islam, even reduced to a clichéd playground for pirates, was in reality a major site for the development
of Muslim societies between the seventh and twelfth centuries."
-Le Monde

The Crucible
of Islam
G. W. Bowersock
"A remarkable work of
scholarship."
-Christopher Carroll,
Wall Street Journal
"To write about the Arabian
background of the Prophet
Muhammad, about the origin
of Islam in Mecca and Medina,
and about the first conquests
that led to the formation of the
Arab empire (roughly between
560 and 690 ad ) is to attempt
to describe the first moments
of a supernova-the flash
of a stupendous detonation
that marks the death of a
massive star and the release of
enormous amounts of energy.
G.W. Bowersock has met this
challenge in a little book of
explosive originality and
penetrating judgment."
-Peter Brown,
