Reviews for Islam: An Illustrated Journey

The text by Farhad Daftary and Zulfikar Hirji provides an accessible, largely even-handed account [...] Only the most diligent readers will be able to keep their eyes fixed on the text, however. This is primarily a book of illustrations, and they are stunning. [...] Readers of all types, whatever their views on the divine, will find plenty to marvel at in these splendid pages. * The Times Literary Supplement *
