This gripping (and controversial) book recounts the momentous events of Late Antiquity, exploring the rise of Islam, the fall of Persia and the drastic shrinking of the Byzantine empire. In particular Holland explores the triumph of monotheism and the processes whereby all three Abrahamic religions came to be canonically defined, arguing especially for a sceptical approach to the Arabic sources for early Islam, and questioning its Meccan origin.
