Islam is as closely tied to trade as it is to hospitality. Spices and aromatics provide unlimited opportunities for both activities. Since the time of the Prophet Muhammad, the Islamic world has had vital role to play. The story of Muslim cultivators and merchants is seldom told but has been shaping the world for centuries and continues to do so. Spice Journeys: Taste and Trade in the Islamic World takes readers into this generally uncharted territory.
