Editorial Reviews


'This book provides a major contribution to the social andintellectual history of the Mamluk age.' - Robert Irwin; 'Few scholars in the current generation have done as much to enlighten us on architecture in Egypt and Syria as Nasser Rabbat. Anything by this author on the Mamluks is to be considered essential reading. He brings to the subject keen analytical skills with a thorough knowledge of the monuments and the sources,all grounded in the most up-to-date methodologies.' - Bernard O'Kane, Professor of Islamic Art and Architecture, The American University in Cairo

This book gave me the perfect additional info i needed for my master thesis. The illustrations are magnificent and pertinent, and permit concrete visualisation of the items treated in the book. So, it can be called a basic handbook for every student of Islamic history and culture.
