National-Geographic-like Introduction to Islam
This book is a wonderful short overview of the basic beliefs and practices within Islam. It is divided into 22 short chapters of a page or two (small print, two-column), each combined with a superb photographic illustrations. It is a little like getting a set of National Geographic essays on Islam in one place. There is a brief introduction and conclusion putting the religion in context. Sometimes covers things not easily found elsewhere. Malek Chabel, the author, is a Paris-based anthropologist and journalist who specializes in Islam. I also recommend the other books in this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Symbols of Islam is a nice, brief interpretation of Islam and it's practises. Every major aspect of Islam is described in a nice amount. It does not go in too much detail but talks about the main, general areas. Great Read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
