Review of Metaphysics 16 (3):588-588 (1963)

Those looking for extensive accounts of Islamic theological and philosophical systems will not find them in this survey. It presents rather a historical sketch of the political and social forces operating in the Islamic world, from the time of Mohammed to the present, which gave rise to the basic trends in theology and philosophy. The complexity of these forces will impress the Western reader, and those wanting a background for more detailed study of Islamic philosophers and theologians will find the book useful. The first in a series of volumes on Islamic culture directed to the English-speaking student.--R. H. K.
