Original Title: Los orígenes del islam

In spite of keeping up long and fertile contacts in the course of history, and despite its ever more active presence in contemporary society, Islam is still for us, in general terms, a great unknown. In this book Professor Vernet – one of the greatest western specialists in the field, and in particular an internationally recognised authority on Arab science, as well as having translated the Koran and The Thousand and One Nights – presents us with Islam’s basic principles, its early history and development, and does so in a straightforward and extremely pleasant style. This book is bound to become an excellent introduction for anyone who wishes to approach Islam from a basis of solid knowledge.
