'This work is ... both of general human interest, as well as specific interest with respect to the dialogue between 'Islam and the West' today.' Amina Inloes, Journal of Shi'a Islamic Studies
'... a well-written and well-organized summation of the complexities of time management in Muslim societies, not only in the early modern period, but throughout Islamic history.

While the ruling elite of each of the three empires in Blake's study saw itself as the power base of an Islamic empire, all three empires were nevertheless the successors of the preceding cultures that they conquered and were subsequently compelled to use localized cosmopolitan constructions and understandings of time to ossify the reality of their power and to secure the viability of their empires.'
