Description

Exploring an Islamic Empire surveys the three main phases of Fatimid history, and examines various sources that provide information for historical analysis. These sources range from direct evidence such as coins, building dedications, documents and letters, eyewitness and contemporary accounts, histories and biographies, scientific and literary writings, to the work of modern scholars. An extensive bibliography of both medieval sources and modern studies makes this not only a valuable addition to the historiography of the Fatimids but essential reading for students and scholars of Islamic history.
