The final assembling and editing of the six-volume "New Cambridge History of Islam," which will replace the two-volume history published over thirty years ago. (12 months)

Cambridge Histories are intended to provide authoritative accounts of their fields. However, the two-volume Cambridge History of Islam, first published in 1970, gives only a limited and now dated coverage of the history of the Islamic world. We are in the process of superseding it with a new Cambridge History of Islam in six volumes of 300,000 words each. No other work of this kind has been published, or is likely to be in the foreseeable future. We are seeking a grant to cover some of the costs of the final editing, above all the cost of employing for a further year an editorial assistant who acts as the administrative center of the project and who helps the project director and volume editors with assembling and editing the contributions.
