Islamic Urbanism in Human History: Political Power and Social Networks
Tsugitaka Sato (Editor)
0710305605
May 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Islamic cultures in the Middle East have inherited and developed a legacy of urbanism spanning millennia. Most studies have focused exclusively on urban social organization, often neglecting the extension of political power to rural areas. Covering Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Iran, and Brunei, this book explores the relationship between political power and social networks in medieval and modern Islamic history. The authors examine social, religious, and administrative networks that governed rural and urban areas and led to state formation, providing a more inclusive view of the mechanisms of power and control in the Islamic world.
