Description


"As a scholar of Islamic art and history, as a talented photographer, and as a decades-long resident of Cairo and Egypt, Bernard O'Kane has fused his multiple beings into providing a visual celebration of Egypt's Islamic architectural heritage. Egypt's Islamic monuments have long played step-sister to their pharaonic antecedents and Professor O'Kane's volume does much to correct the imbalance. . . . Truly a book to delight the eye and intrigue the historian."--Caroline Williams, ASTENE Bulletin



"An encyclopedic, chronological, and relentlessly full documentation of the buildings studied within a large and immersive format. . . . Despite the author's advanced, original, and often primary scholarship, the text remains clear and accessible to experts and novices alike."--Tammy Gaber, American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences


"The photographs, mostly the author's own, are of especial note, not only beautiful but of academic importance thanks to the recording of fine detail often invisible to the naked eye in the older monuments."--The Art Newspaper
