Summary

This concise revisionist account of the historical evolution of Islamic society breaks new ground by going beyond the caliph and the capital. Bulliet offers a lucid understanding of how and why Islam continues to be rooted in the social structures of the vast majority of people who live far from the political locus and do not see the caliphate as essential in their lives.
