Description from the publisher:

Over the key period of 600-945, the Muslims developed a salaried, semi-professional army, dependent on the state for its livelihood. In this extraordinary survey, Kennedy shows how the army began to influence and eventually dominate the political system, and reflects on how the involvement of the military in Middle Eastern politics today has its origins in this period.

Hugh Kennedy is Professor of Middle Eastern History at the University of St. Andrews. His major publications include The Early Abbasid Caliphate, The Prophet and the Age of the Caliphs, and Muslim Spain and Portugal.
