Price: AUS$49.50 (GST inc)
The challenge of the 'discovering of Australia' is associated with Australia over the course of centuries, even from ancient times.
However, little is known, or has been forgotten about the sophisticated historical era in which the Muslim seafarers of different backgrounds participated in the re-discovery of Australia and culturo-religious interaction. This scholarship for the first time brings much significant and interesting information, from a wide range of sources, revealing the early Muslim exploration of Australia and an Islamic contribution to the riches of the early Australian multireligious history.
The periods of history span from the 8th to the 15th century, expanding until the beginning of the 20th century. This book reveals the important but unknown dimension: that the 'Muslim discovery of Australia' occurred at the same time when Islam appeared among in the world's many regions.
