Colin Paul Mitchell, "Journal of the American Oriental Society," 2004. '"Afsaruddin s work is truly seminal the book s epistemic value is immense In academe, the work should be a vital part of any reading list for graduate comprehensive examinations in Islamic studies."' Khaleel Mohammed, "H-Net Reviews," 2004."
