Yet how did chroniclers represent this crucial period? Tayeb El-Hibris book applies a new literary-critical reading to the sources to demonstrate how medieval narrators devised various elusive ways of shedding light on controversial religious, political and social issues, while ostensibly presenting a history loyal to the Abbasid dynasty.

This is an important book that represents a landmark in the field of early Islamic historiography.
