This is one of the best books related to the sufism... it is not a history book nor a general definition of sufism... book consists of different articles of same author and each article goes to the details of the concept or practice examined.. Book is very successfull matching the idea and practices of the sufism with the Hadith and the Qur'an which are the main sources of Islam..
