Ancient Islamic art can offer us insights to its history. This title examines what art reveals about history and simultaneously how history explains the art. It explores past civilizations through both the images it produced and cultural artifacts that remain. This title focuses on how art and architecture from a distinct period reflected life at the time, and how we can use the surviving art to understand how people used to live.

Baker & Taylor
