I’ve started reading a brief textbook about the history of Islam and some notable figures, and I’m really in love with how rich and complex things were. Is anyone writing these types of stories???
I would literally pay to read stuff about Mehmet II’s battle with Vlad the Impaler, or the Italian merchants who printed the first Qur’an. Or the tale of Chinese Muslim sailors who were stranded off the coast of Kenya. Or about Moorish Spain. Or the criticism of the Armenian genocide.
