Reviews

[An] immensely rich cultural and historical source.--M. Swartz"Choice" (09/01/2012)
Proactive spirituality is the propelling force beneath Hajj: Journey to the Heart of Islam...The subject is the great pilgrimage to Mecca that every Muslim is enjoined to make at least once and that millions embark on every year. The book takes you on every step of the route over centuries, through both extraordinary works of art dating from the eighth century to last year, and artifacts including mass-produced souvenirs--T-shirts emblazoned with 'Congratulations on your Hajj!'--created for the present-day pilgrimage industry.-- (11/20/2012)
