The Making of a Mediterranean Emirate

This book argues that between 1200 and 1400 Ifrīqiyā was not an economic or political region. It shows how Emirism, a political ideology that emerged at the end of the fourteenth century, led both medieval sources and modern historians to imagine Ifrīqiyā as a region.
