Product Description


'This is a compelling and accessible account of the Norman rulers and how they related to their counterparts in the Muslim Mediterranean.' Middle East

'… a meticulous study … It is a welcome addition to the limited corpus dealing with the Arabo-Islamic heritage in Sicily … the advantage of giving specialists in the divergent realms of Norman and Islamic studies glimpses of their familiar territories from a fresh angle … one of the strengths of this study is that it traverses boundaries of language and religion which more frequently remain uncrossed …' Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies

Book Description

In a comprehensive 2002 account of the Arabic administration of Norman Sicily, the author demonstrates that, contrary to the traditional view, the Normans deliberately imported the island's Arabic administration from contemporary Egypt. He also suggests that its primary function was not administration but the projection of the royal image.
