4.0 out of 5 stars Splendid, 14 Feb. 2009
Splendind!! Tariq Ali a very gifted and distinguished writer re-creates the lost Islamic Spain. He has given to the world what the Spanish inquisition has taken away from us. You almost feel for the characters of the book about the troublesome times they had to endure without any help from anywhere and were left to fend for themselves. I recommend this very highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mughals, 14 Feb. 2009
Very interestingly put together. I must say this book is an eye opener. There is a lot this book can teach us today. All that mughals did was to safeguard their own interest. Mughals were indeed the pioneers in rapid urbanisation in otherwise a predominant rural India. From literrary advancement to the life sciences reasearches, gardens to the most stunning mosques,forts and the Taj their contribution to India is immense. Thogh not very popular with masses they do actualy represent India to the world even now. Abrahm Early is a gifted book writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zafar the mistaken Sultan, 14 Feb. 2009
An outstanding work by Dalrymple. He has painstakingly researched and unearthed enough important materials laid buried in the Indian archelogical offices. Not only the facts presented in the book but the manner in which he writes is just outstanding. Its a page turner. His comparison of the lifestyles of the east and west prevalant at the time is very interesting. This book for me will be a treasure.'*****
