Fascinating book on Mecca and Medina. The actual text is not an awful lot but the quality of the content, the photographs and the overall presentation of the book is superb. The book is a large hard back book and the black seal you see across the front keeps the cover closed which opens like the doors to the Kaba. Inside the book are high quality gloss photographs of Mecca and Medina as well and a history of the two cities up to modern times by Fethullah Gulen a modern Islamic scholar who treats the subject in a sympathetic manner.
All in all there is nothing to fault about this book its well worth the money.
