In Islamic Civilization in Thirty Lives: The First 1,000 Years, GC President Chase Robinson, a leading historian of early Islam, weaves together biographies of key figures — from the Prophet Muhammad to the poet Rumi, from the woman scholar Karima al-Marwaziyya to the world conqueror Timur. The result is an illuminating narrative of this often misunderstood civilization. He speaks with Sarah Chayes, acclaimed author of Thieves of State, to celebrate the book’s release.Buy tickets/get more info now
