Abstract:

"Although the first towns the Arabs founded during the expansion of Arabia were only vast campsites, it was not long before their temporary dwellings gave way to the magnificent signature architecture of Arabian culture. What was it like to live in the Arab cities of the Abbasid dynasty, grand oases of refinement and innovation? This program describes key centers of the Muslim town, inluding the mosque and the souk; technical achievements such as the waterwheel; and the roles of the prince, the doctors of the law, and the leaders of the various social groups in keeping order within the bustling community"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site.
