This text seeks to make the academic study of religion a more prominent consideration in the study of Islam than it has been in the past. Islamic Studies: A History of Religions Approach, Second Edition represents a substantial revision that has been both updated to reflect IslamUs rise in North America and the international media, and refocused to situate the study of Islam within the comparative study of religions.
