An original exploration into the governors of Egypt under the caliphs, this seminal study of Wüstenfeld has remained essential reading on the topic since its original publication in the 1870s. Originally published in four parts, this edition contains the entire study in its original German. A thorough and meticulous record of the rulers of Egypt during the period of the caliphs, this book should not be overlooked by students of the Islamic culture of Egypt. Written from a lifetime of study in the field, Wüstenfeld’s sharp outlines of the governors and their influence in the growth and development of Egypt under Muslim leadership hold an authority and insight that make the book a desirable addition to the library of Arabists and scholars of Egypt alike.

A thorough and meticulous record of the rulers of Egypt during the period of the caliphs, this book should not be overlooked by students of the Islamic culture of Egypt. Written from a lifetime of study in the field, Wüstenfeld’s sharp outlines of the governors and their influence in the growth and development of Egypt under Muslim leadership hold an authority and insight that make the book a desirable addition to the library of Arabists and scholars of Egypt alike. Each of the four fascicles is divided into a different time period, and combined they provide an overview that stretches from the late sixth century through most of the tenth century. While the information on each governor is abundant it is not overwhelming, thus making this study an appropriate introduction to a much larger field of inquiry.

Heinrich Ferdinand Wüstenfeld (1808-1899) was a German Orientalist with a particular concern for Arabic study. Educated at Göttingen and Berlin, he eventually became a professor at the former. A prolific writers, he published several important works on Arabic history.
