Saladin: The Life, the Legend and the Islamic Empire
(Produkt nebyl zatím hodnocen)
But Saladin is far more than a historical hero. Builder, literary patron and theologian, he is a man for all times, and a symbol of hope for an Arab world once again divided, and once again wrestling with the problems of dealing with the ‘West’. In cities from Damascus to Cairo and beyond, to the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf, Saladin is central to Arab memories, sensibilities and the ideal of a unified Islamic state.
In this authoritative biography, historian John Man brings Saladin and his world to life in vivid detail, exploring his legacy and its significance for the world today.
