Overview

Saladin is one of the best known figures of the Middle Ages, and this study makes use of hitherto neglected Arabic sources, including unpublished manuscript material - -notably the correspondence, both private and official, of Saladin's own court -to set the whole of Saladin's career and achievements, civil and military, within the specific framework of his age.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Lyons and Jackson have produced a distinguished and extremely well researched book which is likely to become a standard work in the field and become required reading for all students of Ayyubid history. it has the added merit of being accessible, as the authors themselves intend, to the non-Arab historian: despite its wealth of documentation and factual description it reads easily and will be readily understood by the non-specialist.'
