Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic study of 10th and 11th century society in Buyid Iran is published here for the first time in a paperback edition, revised with new material. Historian Roy Mottahedeh explains how Islamic society was able to function during the Middle Ages in a stable manner even without political institutions such as existed in the West.

Book News Annotation:

Concentrating on the Buyid dynasty that ruled in Iran and Iraq during the 10th and 11th centuries, Mottahedeh (history and Islamic studies, Harvard U.) portrays an Islamic society undergoing a great social upheaval. The first edition was published in 1980 by Princeton University Press. He has clarified a few matters that readers had misunderstood, substituting some anecdotes for others. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press.
