From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—This book purports to be "adapted" from the revised edition of Atlas of the Islamic World Since 1500 (Facts On File, 1990). However, limited editing was done, and the quality of the material did not merit a glorified reissue of the 1982 original. The changes are primarily deletions from the original text; there are very few updates or additions. The book's time line is picked up directly from the 1982 edition, and the most recent event is the assassination of President Sadat in Egypt. There is no mention of the change in Western perceptions of Islam since the 9/11 attacks, nor is there any discussion of radical Islam. Any 2009 edition of such a work should acknowledge these changes in the modern era at least in an introduction (but even the introduction is a straight pickup from the prior work). The original timeline ended in 1981, and not even it has been updated. Roughly half of the book is focused on "Muslim History," which is accurate enough, though, sadly, truncated, as it is missing the last 25 years of history. The photos have been updated, and the book has a more modern look than the earlier editions, but that's not a reason to purchase it. It is not "new."—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH
