Destiny Disrupted - A History Of The World Through Islamic Eyes - By "Tamim Ansary"

File Size: 11.37 mb

Some writers are scrupulous about the system they use for transliterating Islamic names and words into English, insisting that one or another system is correct. I have to confess I am not among them. I have seen my own name spelled too many different ways in English to be picky. (People often ask me, which is correct, Ansari or Ansary-is it y or z? Well, neither, really: it's the letter yaw.) Given the arbitrary nature of transliteration, my guiding principle in this book has been to go for the simplest spellings and the most recognizable reductions.
