Charting the spread of the minaret throughout the Islamic lands until its universal acceptance as a sign, Bloom concludes with an overview of subsequent developments once the minaret had become the symbol of Islam.Bloom, Jonathan M. is the author of 'Minaret Symbol of Islam' with ISBN 9780197280133 and ISBN 0197280137.
