From the book Preface:

This book is based on lectures delivered in the University of London ; the publication of them has been delayed owing to the exacting nature of the author’s work in the School of Oriental Studies. Students of Muslim history will at once recognize his indebtedness to the works of Barthold, Becker, Caetani, Nallino, and Snouck Hurgronje, and he cannot claim to have done much more than present the result of their researches to English readers who may be unacquainted with the scattered writings of these distinguished authorities.

A part of Chapter IV has already appeared in the Edinburgh Review, and is reproduced here with the permission of the editor.
