THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ISLAM is by far the most exhaustivereligious encyclopeda ever developed. Only about two thirds completedthe work is already generally recognized as one of the greatest collective achievements of History of Religions scholarship. With the CD-ROM edition now available for instutions and scholars the availablity of this masterful reference work will have an even greater diffusion and influence than it already has. Also Brill is dedicated to providing timely updates to all registered owners as they become available. The result of decades of research and work, Brill's THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ISLAM is generally considered as one of the major scholarly enterprises of this century. Its sheer size and scope are enormous. Its millions of words and thousands of articles contain a true mine of information of immense value for any student and researcher of the Islamic world. This renowned reference work is now available on CD-ROM. We tested the individual edition in English and found the work useful. We did have some problems with installation but Brill has provided quite clear online help. As a research tool THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ISLAM CD-ROM has all the advantages of electronic searchability with a number of unique advantages that unlocks its great wealth of detail in this reference work and thereby enhances research.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought that I was ordering a hardback book, not a CD ROM. The seller also advertised the product as being in it's original shrink-wrapped packaging. What we received was not in a sealed package. In fact, it appeared the it had been pulled off a shelf in the back recesses of a bookstore....dust and all. Since this publication is apparently difficult to find, we decided to keep what was sent to us.
