Summary
"The more than 400 color photographs in this book, edited by Henry Stierlin, an expert on Near and Middle Eastern cultures from prehistoric times to our days, illustrate the magnificent works produced by the dynasties that have written Islamic history for more than a millennium: the Umayyads, Abbasids, Turkish Seljuks, Fatimids, Ayyubids, Mamluks of Cairo, Aghlabids of Kairouan, Almoads and Merinids of Morocco, Nasrids of Granada, and the Ottomans of Istanbul."--Jacket
