Item description for Ibn Khaldun: An Essay in Reinterpretation (Ceu Medievalia) by Aziz Al-Azmeh...

This is the third, slightly revised edition of this book, after 1981 Frank Cass and 1990 Routledge. Since its first publication, Al-Azmehs book has established itself as the major new interpretation of Ibn Khaldns work.

Ibn Khaldn (1332 Tunis 1406 Cairo) was a great figure of Arab-Islamic letters and of historical thought overall, is a figure on a par with Thucydides, Herder, Vico and others of similar stature.

The Middle East Journal: "Even those who disagree with Dr. Al-Azmeh's demystification of Ibn Khaldn will have to admit that his "reinterpretation" is provocative and profound."

Starting with an interpretation of Ibn Khaldn's narration of history in the context of classical Arabic historical writing, the author's interpretation then moves on to a meticulous reconstruction of Ibn Khaldn's conception of history. The book then goes on to sketch the content and structure of Ibn Khaldn's most celebrated work, the Muqaddima. The book ends with "bibliographic orientations" for the help of the reader.
