A Traveller in Thirteenth-century Arabia: Ibn Al-Mujāwir's Tārīkh Al-mustabṣir
This is the first English translation of the Tarikh al-Mustabsir, written in the early quarter of the thirteenth century by Ibn al-Mujawir. The text is a fascinating account of the western and southern areas of the Arabian Peninsula by a man from the east of the Islamic world, probably from Khurasan in Iran, and provides a unique source for social and economic history, written with a humour and wit otherwise unknown in the writings of medieval Islam. This translation is fully annotated with an introduction, appendices, glossary and full index, and contains maps and illustrations.
