A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book offers an analysis of the Syro-Egyptian Mamluk Sultanate s political culture, focusing on the period between 1341 and 1382 CE, when twelve descendants of the regime s most successful sultan al-Nasir Muhammad b. Qalawun reigned and the military were more deeply involved in the political process than ever. The book consists of three chapters, each of which discusses one major component of this period s political culture: political institutions, political relationships engendering households and networks, and the dynamics of the period s many socio-political conflicts. This book marks an important breakthrough in Mamluk studies, offering both insights into the history of a long-neglected period and new models of analysis that call for wider application in the field of Mamluk socio-political history.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This book offers an analysis of the Syro-Egyptian Mamluk Sultanate's political culture, focusing on the period between 1341 and 1382 CE, when twelve descendants of the regime's most successful sultan al-N-ir Mu-ammad b. Qal-w-n reigned and the military were more deeply involved in the political process than ever. The book consists of three chapters, each of which discusses one major component of this period's political culture: political institutions, political relationships engendering households and networks, and the dynamics of the period's many socio-political conflicts. This book marks an important breakthrough in Mamluk studies, offering both insights into the history of a long-neglected period and new models of analysis that call for wider application in the field of Mamluk socio-political history.

Critique:

"The main strength of Van Steenbergen's book lies in the combination of a traditional approach to the sources, command of the literature, the application of prosopography and inslghts derived from political SOciology and, in this respect, is similar to Frenkel's use of prosopography and sociology. The book succeeds in living up to its title: it makes sense of the chaos, explains the order that emerged out of it and sheds light on MamlUk socio-political culture." Yaacov Lev, Jerusalem Studies in Arabic and Islam, 34(2008), 560-562 "A masterful and very valuable evaluation ... offers, for the first time in many years, a refreshing sociological perspective on Mamluk "'decline"... a "must-read" Bethany J. Walker, Bulletin d'Etudes Orientales, LVIII (2008-2009) 412-415
