not uninteresting, but... 15 Jan. 2007
By Eve Beglarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
this is a survey of various medieval islamic thinkers' attitudes about music. the author traces greek ideas as they were adapted into islamic thought, and then includes a section about various attitudes about the question of the suitability of listening to music at all(!)

while the book is not an uninteresting survey of material it would be hard to find elsewhere in english, I must say I don't think I have EVER read a book with so many silly spelling errors, syntax errors, and layout errors. the huge number of stupid errors makes you mistrust the actual information, which may or may not be unfair to the author, but is really a shocking failure on the part of the publisher.

how do the publishers get away with this level of incompetence??!!?!
