Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Medieval Muslim Historians and the Franks in the Levant contains the table of contents, acknowledgements and a list of abbreviations. The book focuses on Muslim historians and the work or works they wrote containing information relevant to the crusading period. The writing of history in the medieval Islamic world followed a rather different path to that of history writing in contemporaneous western Europe. As Meisami has commented in the context of medieval Persian historical writing, 'the medieval historian's primary interest lay less in recording the "facts" of history than in the construction of meaningful narratives'.

Keywords: medieval Islamic world; Meisami; Muslim historians
