    Houtsma et al. Nigosian, Solomon Alexander Today, Muslims may be found throughout the world! The new edition already occupies eight volumes plus supplementary fascicles amounting to more than nine thousand pages—when complete this would make it roughly triple the size of the first edition, an increase attributable both to expanded or revised and updated treatment of some topics and the inclusion of new, additional articles. It also tends to have a much clearer focus and greater overall consistency than the Encyclopaedia of Islam.

    Daftary, JAOS, pp. What Everyone Needs to Know about Islam. It began in much the same way as its predecessor, but a growing proportion of the articles now come from scholars of Muslim background. There has been particular praise for the variety of topics included; the balanced treatment of the ancient, medieval, and modern periods; the quality of the individual articles; and the rigorous editing and extensive documentation reflected in the articles. It also has the effect of making the work less satisfactory as a reference tool for those interested in areas of Islam studies that do not coincide with the priorities of the Encyclopaedia of Islam. What Went Wrong?

    Finally, it may be noted that such deficiencies in the conception or execution of the Encyclopaedia of Islam have had one fortuitous result: they have inspired the production of several comparable reference works aimed at correcting them. The verse mentioning the "Scriptures" is in Quran where they are referred to "Books of the Earliest Revelation". Virtually all reviewers agree that the Encyclopaedia Iranica has succeeded in defining its own distinct identity and is now the most authoritative and absolutely indispensable reference work in its field. Kobeisy, Ahmed Nezar Sundermann, Orientalistische Literaturzeitung 84,
