Islamic civilisation was once the envy of the world – its cities unrivalled powerhouses of artistic grandeur, commercial power, spiritual sanctity and forward-looking thinking.

As with his acclaimed Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood, historian and journalist Justin Marozzi – after having spent most of his professional life in the Middle East – captivatingly combines history with reportage, bringing storytelling to the fore.

Islamic Empires is a history of this rich civilisation told through its greatest cities over the fifteen centuries of Islam.
