This significant work, first published in translation in 1907, forms the fourth part of G. Zaydan's history of the Islamic Civilization. It traces the rise of the Pious Caliphs ('successors to the apostle of God'), through to the Umayyad Dynasty in the seventh and eighth centuries, and on to the end of the Abbasid Dynasty which reached its zenith in the ninth and tenth centuries. An introduction provides a concise outline of the essence of Arab social conduct which greatly influenced tribal interaction during the rise of the Islamic empire.
