This review is from: The Adventures of Ibn Battuta: A Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century (Paperback)
Excellent research by the author. My compliments. I learned a lot on the issues of those days. The events described in Ibn Battuta's My Rihla are carefully compared and analyzed with other documents from that time. I learned a lot about the man Ibn Battuta, and I must say I was a bit disappointed. He was not really a very nice man. The author shows why Ibn Battuta did the things he did. One thing is for sure: Ibn Battuta was a great traveller.
If you are interested in Ibn Battuta, or the time he lived in then this is a must read.
