And this is all while covering every angle of the events from multiple empires and religions. This is a valuable film that analyzes the historical context of both the rise and fall of Islam.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
