Articles from the pages of "National Geographic" offer a portrait of the history and culture of the Islamic world as seen through Western eyes, from the last days of the Ottoman Empire to contemporary war-ravaged Afghanistan.

Simon and Schuster
A timely look at a timeless culture, The World of Islam looks back on almost a century of classic NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC coverage of Islamic culture all over the world. A wonderful mix of photographs, narratives, maps, and more, these chronologically-arranged articles will take you from the Afghan frontier in the fierce days of Rudyard Kipling to the stunning mosques and minarets of Mecca at the start of a new millenium. Islam?s long, rich tradition and often far-flung and exotic locales have been explored again and again in the pages of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, and this volume revisits them all, from the very first article in 1906 to the present day. This dramatic, profusely illustrated expedition collects two dozen pieces that add up to a historical and geographical portrait of Islam and a vivid glimpse of how it appears to Western eyes.
