'Accessible and original, Chiara Formichi's Islam and Asia puts the history of Muslims and Islam exactly where it belongs - in the vast area where most of the world's Muslims live. Muslims transformed Asia; and Islam here, as everywhere, was enriched and transformed as well. Enlivened by illustrations, maps, insets, and primary sources, the book is not only a delight for specialists, but an excellent if unexpected entree for beginners curious about Islamic history.' Barbara D. Metcalf, Professor of History Emerita, University of California, Davis
'This is a necessary and accessible volume. Formichi offers a bird's eye view of Islam in Asia, but does not skimp on rich examples. Readers are left with an understanding of Islam in Asia, Asian Islams, and how Asia is, in fact, central to the story of Islamic histories as well as specific, concrete examples of that history and its plurality.' Ilyse R. Morgenstein Fuerst, University of Vermont
