Saladin, die Almohaden und die Banu Ghaniya - mittelalterliche Machtkonstellationen
Verlagsinformation In Saladin, the Almohads and the Banū Ghāniya, Amar Baadj gives us the first comprehensive, modern study of a fascinating but little-known episode in the history of the medieval Mediterranean. This is the story of the long struggle between the Almohadcaliphs of the Maghrib, the Banū Ghāniya of Majorca, and the Ayyubidsfor dominance of North Africa. The author makes use of important textual sources that have been ignored as well as new archaeological evidence to challenge some of the basic assumptions about the events in question. He also successfully places these events in their wider temporal and geographical context for the first time.
