Travels with a Tangerine: A Journey in the Footnotes of Ibn Battutah

Mackintosh-Smith, Tim Author

9780330491143: Travels with a Tangerine: A Journey in the Footnotes of Ibn Battutah

'A gripping and accomplished travel book ...[it] stands out for its integrity and intelligence.' - Anthony Sattin, "Sunday Times". Ibn Battutah was the greatest traveller of the pre-mechanical age, journeying for twenty nine years and covering three times the ground Marco Polo covered. Tim Mackintosh-Smith follows the first stage of Ibn Battutah's journey, from Tangier to Constantinople. Destinations include an Islamic Butlin's in the Egyptian desert, Assassin castles in Syria, the Kuria Maria Islands in the Arabian Sea and some of the greatest cities of Medeival Islam. He also cleverly compares the contemporary Muslim world with the past. 'Mackintosh-Smith slips effortlessly between our world and that of the fourteenth century. In doing so, he has created a gripping and accomplished travel book...We will be lucky if there is a better one published this year' - "Sunday Times". 'An immensely engaging book...Subversive good humour without relentless jokiness; and a descriptive eye capable of sketching complext details in a few telling lines.' - "Daily Telegraph".
