Description
 
Christopher Kremmer (au). Apart from oil, rugs are the Muslim world’s best-known commodity. While rugs are found in most Western homes, the story of religious, political, & tribal strife behind their creation is virtually unknown. Here, Kremmer chronicles his fascinating 10-year journey along the ancient carpet trade routes that run through the world’s most misunderstood & volatile regions -- Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, India, Pakistan, & the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. He takes readers into a world where even the simplest motif on a rug can be filled with religious, tribal, & political significance, & he offers a personal, vivid, & revealing look at Islam’s human face, wracked by turmoil but sustained by friendship, industry, & humor. B&W illustrations.
