The Encyclopaedia of Islam (New Edition, now also called EI-2) sets out the present state of our knowledge of the Islamic World. It is a unique and invaluable reference tool, an essential key to understanding the world of Islam, and the authoritative source not only for the religion, but also for the believers and the countries in which they live.
It embraces articles on distinguished Muslims of every age and land, on tribes and dynasties, on the crafts and sciences, on political and religious institutions, on the geography, ethnography, flora and fauna of the various countries and on the history, topography and monuments of the major towns and cities. In its geographical and historical scope it encompasses the old Arabo-Islamic empire, the Islamic countries of Iran, Central Asia, the Indian sub-continent and Indonesia, the Ottoman Empire and all other Islamic countries.

The Glossary & Index of Terms is, next to the Index of Proper Names and the Index of Subjects the third key to the vast corpus of knowledge contained in The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
The Glossary & Index of Terms, now brought up to date with the data of volume nine of the main work (1997, 920 pages), deals with the terms in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and other languages or dialects of the Islamic world.
Especially the listing of terms which are not given as a headword in The Encyclopaedia itself, but are discussed in the course of an article - and consequently hard to be found - will be of value to scholars and non-specialists alike.
Highly recommended for use with The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
