Islamic civilization was once the envy of the world. From a succession of glittering, cosmopolitan capitals, the caliphate was both ascendant on the battlefield and triumphant in the battle of ideas. Its cities such as Mecca, Istanbul and Isfahan were unrivalled powerhouses of artistic grandeur, commercial power and spiritual sanctity.
Islamic Empires is a history of this rich and diverse civilization told through its greatest cities and most remarkable dynasties and is an amazing achievement, spanning fifteen centuries of Islam and fifteen cities. We have great pleasure in welcoming back author and Middle Eastern specialist Justin Marozzi for this illustrated talk.
