"A timely and highly recommended work." Booklist "A fascinating book." -- Bruce Riedel Tablet Magazine "Apocalypse in Islam makes a crucially important contribution to our understanding of current events." -- Charles Cameron Jihadology "Carefully outlines what the apocalyptic literature is saying, and places it in a broad historical and theological context. It presents sober and balanced assessments, and is a truly useful resource." -- Peter Kirkwood The Australian "Fascinating ... a must read." Australian Financial Review Magazine "The University of California Press is to be praised for adding to the book color plates of 22 lurid covers of these recent novels. These alone are worth the price of admission." -- Shalom Goldman Haaretz "An important work for students not just of Islam but also of religion, politics, and popular culture in general." Choice "A fascinating and accessible text... You'll be much better informed after reading Apocalypse in Islam." -- Angela Mende Law Society Journal
