Islamic Central Asia is the first English-language anthology of primary documents for the study of Central Asian history. Scott C. Levi and Ron Sela draw from a vast array of historical sources to illustrate important aspects of the social, cultural, political, and economic history of Islamic Central Asia. These documents--many newly translated and most not readily available for study--cover the period from the 7th-century Arab conquests to the 19th-century Russian colonial era and provide new insights into the history and significance of the region.
The Second Edition of this global, comparative reader--newly edited by the co-authors of Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, Concise Edition--features added textual and visual sources directly tied to developments discussed in the Worlds Together narrative, a new casebook on "Humans and the Environment in the Second Millennium BCE," a deeply discounted package price, and a rich range of global perspectives that set this reader apart.
