Muslim Kingship: Power and the Sacred in Muslim, Christian and Pagan Politics. In this impressive and useful work, Aziz Al-Azmeh tracks the development of the visual and textual expression of kingship in the medieval Muslim world. The book is divided into two parts

Muslim Kingship: Power and the Sacred in Muslim, Christian and Pagan Politics. New York: I. B. Tauris, 2001. Pp. v, 296. ISBN: 1-860-64609-3. The book is divided into two parts. Part One, "Sublime Analogies, Pagan and Monotheistic," addresses the "repertoire of conceptions and regal forms" bequeathed to the emergent Muslim world by the Classical and Late Antique cultures (xvi). Chapter One, confusingly titled "Introduction," presents the author's view of the enuciative nature of power.

This study outlines the main features of the theory and practice of political power in Muslim polities in the Middle Ages against the background of Near Eastern traditions of kingship, particularly Hellenistic, Persian, and Byzantine. The early Arab-Muslim polity is treated as an integral part of late Antiquity and the book explores the way in which older traditions were transposed into Islamic form and given specifically Islamic textual sanction.
