Islamic History (600-750 A.D) by Shaban - A review

Islamic history- A new interpretation by M.A. Shaban as the name says is giving a relatively different historical perspective. The details of even the smallest events provided  is quite impressive. This read clearly shows that Political and Economic factors were inevitable and were given due importance by our then leaders in early years of Islam's dispersal. I came to know many leaders other than Khulf e Rashideen whose works are undermined by Historians like Amir Muawiya and Marwan Alhakam. The never knew terms like Ridda warriers, Muqatila, Khawarij, etc. were explained in the book. On the whole a good book to read.
