A book length historiographic analysis of a large body of rarely studied medieval Islamic maps of the Mediterranean. This research will bring to public light the rich legacy of Islamic maps that have lain virtually ignored in manuscript libraries for generations. The purpose of this analysis is to inform a broad audience of scholars and non-experts about the particular cultural and geopolitical perspective of Islamic cartography across a period of 8 centuries, from the 10th century onwards. This project is intended to create a bridge between Eastern and Western concepts of the history of cartography, and fill in a lacuna in Mediterranean studies: the Islamic perspective.
