Everyday Life in Medieval Baghdad : The Observations and Tales of a Mesopotamian Judge, Hardback Book

Everyday Life in Medieval Baghdad : The Observations and Tales of a Mesopotamian Judge Hardback

Edited by D. S. Margoliouth

Description

Stories of court life, money, torture, swindles, sex, dreams and disease, combine the comic with the sinister and bizarre.

Always entertaining, and told with wit and eloquence, the result is a wonderful first-person account of everyday life in medieval Baghdad and its surroundings.

This two volume set includes translations of sections of Tankukhi's manuscript that only came to light at a later date and which are both little known and rare.

This unique set contains a new introduction by one of the leading scholars of the Middle East, Robert Irwin.
