New Book: The Founder of Cairo: The Fatimid Imam-Caliph Al Mu’izz and his Era

New Book: The Founder of Cairo: The Fatimid Imam-Caliph Al Mu'izz and his EraAuthor: Dr Shainool Jiwa

The Founder of Cairo provides the first annotated English translation of the extensive chapter on al- Mu‘izz in the ‘Uyun, which remains a vital yet relatively unknown Ismaili source. The introduction to this work not only outlines the salient features of al-Mu‘izz’s reign but also examines Idris’ purpose and approach to historical writing.

In providing an insider’s account of the reign of one of the most influential rulers of the medieval Muslim world, this work will be of particular interest to students of Ismaili history and thought, medieval Mediterranean history and Muslim historiography.
