Based on the author's Islamic Dynasties, this reference book gives information on the dynastic families of the Islamic world. Over 186 dynasties are covered, including dynasties from the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South and South-East Asia, and Indonesia. Each dynasty contains a list by name of all the rulers and a concise assessment of its historical significance. Extensive listings on honorific titles and filiations enable the reader to make genealogical connections across the dynasties.
