This interdisciplinary field therefore includes history, religion, philosophy, anthropology, Arabic language and literature, as well as literatures in other languages including Persian, Turkish, and Urdu, and remains responsive to new discoveries, interpretations, ideologies and theories. Oxford Bibliographies in Islamic Studies presents a guided tour through the key literature on each topic, providing context for its development, and a balanced overview of the major issues within a given topic.
