This book is the first published account of the architecture of the mosque in Bradford and its impact on the cityscape. Both purpose-built mosques and the conversion of existing buildings to mosques are considered, together with an explanation of the key architectural and religious features. There is also a discussion of the cultural effects of Islam and a historical comparison with other faith groups that have settled in Bradford and the impact this has had on the urban environment. The book is illustrated with full-colour photographs and has a foreword by the Bishop of Bradford.
