    Jane Dammen McAuliffe (Editor, Library of Congress)


    This Norton Critical Edition is based on a thoroughly revised and annotated version of the well-regarded Pickthall translation of the Qur’an. Jane McAuliffe introduces the Qur’an as a living scripture, preparing readers for an informed encounter with the text. Topics include the scholarly traditions of the study of qur’anic origins; the centuries of commentary, analysis, and intellectual dissemination that have created a library of qur’anic literature; the history of translations, particularly those in English; and the many ways the Qur’an informs Muslim life and material culture.

    This Norton Critical Edition also includes:
    · Seven illustrations.
    · Fifty judiciously selected texts representing the full spectrum of Islamic religious thought that demonstrate the Qur’an’s
    intellectual impact while those from related Near Eastern literatures, including biblical and extra-biblical sources, elucidate
    the comparative contexts of qur’anic themes and narratives. A concluding section presents the Qur’an as an American book, with a long history and significant influence in the United States.
    · A Selected Bibliography.
