Description
Photojournalist Robin Laurance presents this striking visual tour of the Islamic world, from Africa's Atlantic shore through North Africa, the Middle East, Central and Southeast Asia, and the islands of Indonesia. The 154 captioned color images, up to 19 x 10 inches, reflect the diversity and also the commonality of Muslims with each other and the Western societies who remain largely ignorant of their culture. Here are the Bedouin of Oman's deserts and the stockbrokers of Kuwait; the dancers of the Turkish State Ballet and the shadow puppeteers of Java; a group of Friday worshipers in Kuala Lumpur and a solitary roadside worshiper in Saudi Arabia.
