Wonderful history – The Hajj: The Muslim Pilgrimage to Mecca and the Holy Places

I read this book back in 2003. By collecting the first-hand accounts of travellers and shaping their experiences into a richly detailed narrative, F. E. Peters has provided an unparalleled literary history of the central ritual of Islam from its remote pre-Islamic origins to the end of the Hashemite Kingdom of the Hijaz in 1926.

I highly recommend this book.
