Description

A concise account of the Rise and Decline of the Saracenic Power and of the Economic, Social and intellectual Development of the Arab Nation. From the earliest times to the destruction of Bagdad, and the expulsion of the Moors from Spain, with Maps. Illustrations and Genealogical Tables.

This work is not a mere chronicle of wars and conquests, or the rise and fall of dynasties. It is a record of the copious contributions made by the Saracenic race under the flag of Islam, to human knowledge in all departments of science and literature; of their marvelous system of administration; of their economic and cultural development and the remarkable position held by women in the social and legal system of Islam.

The story of the havoc, carnage and savagery wrought by the Crusaders and the Mongols is told from the records of the people who suffered.
