'Reviewers do not always agree with writers of blurbs, but in this case the reviewer must ... the book really is essential reading for all those interested in Islamic history and culture.' Geoffrey Lewis , Asian Affairs 'The merits of this book are several: it is a scholarly work, it is well-researched and clearly presented ... it is surprisingly comprehensive for an introductory text.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society 'David Waines has surely written what will deservedly be the standard introduction to Islam for some time.' Oliver Leaman , Expository Times '... an elegantly written work as useful to the new student daunted by the complexity of Islamic discourse as to the more experienced Muslim who sometimes wonders about the difference between shari'a and fiqh ... Highly recommended.' Periodica Islamica 'Fluent, thoughtful and open-minded.' Aramco World "Waines writes clearly, eloquently and with style and precision." Andrew Rippon , Der Islam "Western businessmen would be advised that 'You can't afford to leave on your next trip to a Muslim country without placing this book on your list of essentials to take along.'"
