The rare and excellent history of Saladin, or, al-Nawādir al-Sultaniyya wa'l-Mahasin al-Yusufiyya by Bahāʼ al-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Rāfiʻ Ibn Shaddād( Book )

39 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aside from its inherient value as a source for the history of Egypt and the Middle East, it therefore provides a much-needed complement and corrective to the widely-known Latin accounts of the Crusades and the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 12th century. The present translation is based on a fuller edition of the text than that used in the previous 19th-century translation, and takes into account the author's readings of the earliest manuscript of the work, dated July 1228"--Jacket

The chronicle of Ibn al-Athīr for the crusading period from al-Kāmil fīʼl-taʼrīkh by ʻIzz al-Dīn Ibn al-Athīr( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Chronicle of Ibn al-Athir (1160-1233A.D.), entitled 'at-Kamil fi'l-Ta'rikh', is one of the outstanding sources for the history of the mediaeval world. It covers the whole sweep of Islamic history almost up to the death of its author and, with the sources available to him, he attempted to embrace the widest geographical spread; events in Iraq, Iran and further East run in counterpoint with those involving North Africa and Spain. From the time of the arrival of the Crusaders in the Levant, their activities and the Muslim response become the focus of the work." "This part covers the establishment of the Crusader states and the initial weak and divided response of Muslim regimes in the area, the moribund fatimid caliphate in Egypt and competing emirs in Syria and Mesopotamia. The strengthening of the Muslim reaction is typified by the career of Zanki, which also illustrates the important links with events in the orbit of the Abbasid caliphate and the Saljuq sultanate."--Jacket
Arabic literature in the post-classical period( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The final volume of The Cambridge History of Arabic Literature explores the Arabic literary heritage of the little-known period from the twelfth to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Even though it was during this time that the famous Thousand and One Nights was composed, very little has been written on the literature of the period generally. In this volume Roger Allen and Donald Richards bring together some of the most distinguished scholars in the field to rectify the situation. The volume is divided into parts with the traditions of poetry and prose covered separately within both their 'elite' and 'popular' contexts. The last two sections are devoted to drama and the indigenous tradition of literary criticism. As the only work of its kind in English covering the post-classical period, this book promises to be a unique resource for students and scholars of Arabic literature for many years to come." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0632/2005020119-d.html

Ibn al-Athir, who died in the 13th century, is one of the most important historians of Islam. His major chronicle, the Kamil fi'l-Ta'rikh, is one of the greatest achievements of Muslim historiography for the range and comprehensiveness of the sources it assembled and for its narrative, covering the whole sweep of Islamic history up to his own lifetime. This volume of D.S. Richards' translation covers the early years of conquest and the period of the 'great sultanate'. With its copious annotations, the translation will open a direct window into this period of history for non-Arabic rea
