Selected bibliography: OP/DIR/GLOBE
Islam in general
John L. Esposito (Editor in Chief), The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Oxford University Press,
("Publication of The Oxford Dictionary of Islam is the next logical step in a long-term
partnership with Oxford to provide major reference works on Islam and the Muslim world. It
began with the four-volume The Oxford Encyclopaedia of the Modern Islamic World, a
collection of entries authored by more than four hundred and fifty Muslim and non-Muslim
scholars. This was followed by The Oxford History of Islam, which combined major articles
with over four hundred illustrations. The Oxford Dictionary of Islam is a natural outgrowth of
this process and adds to the growing library of scholarship on Islam to inform and educate
the general public." see Preface.)
