Known to the west as ''the noble heathen,'' the great Muslim emperor Saladin led Arab forces in the reconquest of the Crusader kingdoms and captured Jerusalem in 1187. This concise history traces Saladin's role in the contest between Islam and Christianity during the twelfth century.Tracing the Sultan's life from the rise of the Crusader States through his triumph over the Franks to the Third Crusade, Mohring elucidates the emperor's accomplishments in uniting the Arab lands of the Middle East, his enlightened relationship with European opponents, and the unique legacy of his rule in the Middle East and beyond.This faithful English-language translation also includes an introduction that places Saladin in his geographic, political, and cultural context.


"Anyone who reads this book will understand why Saladin continues to capture the imagination and interest of people in the 21st century."
