Synopsis

In this short biography you will discover how Imam al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy to become the preeminent Muslim scholar of the eleventh century and a towering figure in the history of Islamic thought.

With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced al-Ghazali is vividly brought alive.

Edoardo Albert is a London-based writer of Italian and Sri Lankan extraction.
