Ibn Khaldun: An Essay in Reinterpretation

liked it 3.0  ·  Rating Details ·  5 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
New interpretation of the historical thought of this great figure of Arab-Islamic letters and of historical thought overall. The author has eschewed the ahistorical interpretations to which Ibn Khaldū n has normally been subjected, both by authors who have sought unduly to modernise his thought, and by those who sought to freeze it in stereotypical models.
Paperback, 163 pages
Published September 1st 2003 by Central European University Press (first published April 19th 1990)
