This is the first serious biography of Saladin in over 20 years and the first ever by a non Western scholar.

This is the first major biography of Saladin, arguably the greatest figure in Islamic history, for 20 years. As famous today as he was when he drove the Crusaders out of Jerusalem, the real Saladin has dissolved into legend with each retelling of his story. This book seeks to redress the balance.

  • A unique non-Western perspective on the life of a heroic leader who united Sunni and Shi''ite against the infidel, this is the first biography of Saladin by a Muslim historian in English

  • Offers a context for today''s struggles in the Middle East

  • Contains dispatches and letters of his most trusted adviser and secretary of state, al-Qadi al-Fadil, which reflect Saladin''s motives and ideals
