"An Historical Atlas of Islam" by William C. Brice was originally published by Brill in 1981. This is a new edition, completely revised and substantially augmented by Professor Hugh Kennedy.

New maps include: Yemen and the Hadramaut, Central Arabia and the Wahhabi expansion, Iran in the era of the Il-Khans and Timurids, environmental regions of the Muslim world, the fertile crescent in early Ottoman times, the Caucasus in early Islamic times, the Maghrib in the age of Almoravids and Almohads and many other regional groups. A wide variety of new city maps has been added including Sanaa, Damascus, Aleppo, Mosul, Baghdad, Cairo, Isfahan, Shiraz, Bukhara, Samarkand, Cordoba, Granada and Delhi. The CD-ROM contains all the maps of the printed version, and a user-friendly search function, using an alphabetical index of places and regions aids quick and efficient searching. A two-level zooming function is an additional feature of the CD-ROM.
