The Arab-Byzantine Frontier in the eight and ninth centuries : military Organisation and Society in the Borderlands

The nature of the conflict and the contacts which developed between the Muslim Caliphate and the Christian Byzantine empire after the middle of the seventh century has been the subject of many studies. The hellenistic and Roman city had never been a centre of production. Commerical and industrial centres certainly existed, but they were comparatively few in number and were even then entirely depen... more

The armies of the caliphs

Byzantine-Arab Diplomacy in the near east from the Islamic Conquests to the mid eleventh century

Arab sources say that mosaic workers and materials were sent by the Byzantine emperors to help in the decoration of mosques in Medina and Damascus, where the surviving eighth-century mosaics may be the tangible proof of this cultural interchange. Support is lent by the much better documented despatch of Byzantine mosaicists to help in the decoration of the great mosque at Cordova during a time of ... more

The city and the nomad

The ‘Islamic city’ has been an important focus of historical discussion for at least a century; scholars have drawn attention to the importance of cities in Islamic society, the vast size of certain cities in the medieval Muslim world and the importance of merchants, not only as generators of wealth but as religious leaders, intellectuals and exemplars of good and worthy citizens. All this is in i... more

The coming of Islam to Bukhara

The Muslim invasions of Turkistan and Iran in the seventeenth century have been discussed several times in the modern literature. This chapter focuses instead on the implication of Muslim invasion on the topography and demography of Bukhara. It considers the geography of Muslim occupation and settlement, the reactions of the local people to the invaders and the impact of the coming of Islam on the... more

Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court

The reign of al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) is a crucial and controversial epoch in the history of the Abbasid empire. Al-Muqtadir’s regime has traditionally been depicted as one of decline, when the political power of the caliphate and the lustre of its capital began to crumble. This book not only offers a substantial investigation of the idea and reality of decline, but also provides new interpret... more

The late ʿAbbāsid pattern, 945-1050

The decline and fall of the Abbasid caliphate in the first half of the fourth/tenth century led to the emergence of a new political order. Many of the post-Abbasid regimes attempted to continue the old system and employ ghilman, with their salaries being paid out of the receipts of taxation. The Ghaznavids rulers followed the middle Abbasid practice of recruiting an army of Turkish ghilman and col... more

The court of the caliphs : the rise and fall of Islam's greatest dynasty

The "golden age of Islam" in the eighth and ninth centuries was as significant to world history as the Roman Empire was in the first and second centuries. The rule of Baghdad's Abbasid Dynasty stretched from Tunisia to India, and its legacy influenced politics and society for years to come. In this deftly woven narrative, Hugh Kennedy introduces us to the rich history and flourishing culture of th... more
