It is comprehensive and well-structured with fascinating material and analysis."--Peter Chelkowski, New York University "An innovative volume analyzing and instantiating the visual culture of a variety of Muslim societies [which] constitutes a substantially new object of study in the regional literature and one that creates productive links with history, anthropology, political science, art history, media studies, and urban studies, as well as area studies and Islamic studies."--Walter Armbrust, University of Oxford
