Descripción Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1977. Cloth in Dust Wrappers. Estado de conservación: Good. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. First Edition. ix, 268 pp, biblio, index, slightly rubbed cover, otherwise copy clean & in very good condition. This book sets out a new theory of the origins of Islam and a novel analysis of the formation of Islamic civilisation. Drawing on archaeological evidence and contemporary documents in Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin and Syriac, Hagarism depicts an early Islam very different from the traditionally accepted version derived from Muslim historical accounts. Although the central hypotheses behind Hagarism have been generally rejected, even by the authors themselves, the book has been hailed as a seminal work in its branch of Islamic historiography.
