The Best Divisions for Knowledge of Regions, Ahsan al-Taqasim fi Ma'rifat al-Aqalim

The Best Divisions for Knowledge of Regions, Ahsan al-Taqasim fi Ma'rifat al-Aqalim

Author : Al-Muqaddasi

A geographical account of the realm of Islam in AD 988. During his travels, the author noted his observations on the regions' topography, climate, hydrology, vegetation, development, architecture, language, religion and culture. Al-Muqaddasi shows himself to be a hardy, intelligent, versatile, resourceful and well-informed man. He designed his book to appeal to a variety of interests, and even to entertain. This work bespeaks an interested and interesting man, seeing his world through a frame of reference derived from his deeply held religious belief, striving scrupulously to get at the truth of the matter as a true scientist. Basil Anthony Collins is Professor of Geography and Planning at the University of Toledo, USA.
