Trace the rise and fall of the IslamicEmpire, from the prophet Muhammad in the 7th century to the sacking of Baghdad.
In the 7th century CE, the prophet Muhammad united the people of the Arabian Peninsula through the formation of Islam. Over the next 30 years, caliphs conquered vast areas beyond Arabia, including their mighty neighbors the Persians and Byzantines. But an empire this vast was at risk of conflict and fracture. PetraSijpesteijn and BirteKristiansen detail the rise and fall of the IslamicEmpire.
