    This book is marketed as a Muslim perspective on the Frankish invasions of the 12 century i.e the Crusades There is certainly much in it about specific battles against the Christian invaders, but it s very much an on the ground perspective It s no survey text If you ve read Steven Runciman or Christopher Tyerman you can distinguish the various battles and periods of advance and retreat, and the writer s e

    Usama ibn Munqidh was a Muslim faris or cavalier from Northern Syria who experienced and wrote a great deal during the Crusades His most famous work, The Book of Contemplation, survives as a rare look into the Holy Land during the Crusades from a Muslim perspective Ibn Munqidh was born on 4 July 1095 at his family s castle at Shayzar His family, the Banu Munqidh, were an established aristocrat

    If you want to know how a muslim viewed the Crusaders which he would only recognise as the broader term of Franks the cross is almost never referred to , read this Usama s version of history, and forget about the current Osama and his war monging This is the real thing.Usama ibn Munqidh writes about his extraordinary and long lasting life as a courtier who mingled with the great men of his time, as a battle s

    What stands out to me most is the warmth and violence of the man and the deranged, but very terrible absurdism of the times.THE STRUCTURE OF THE BOOK.It is a patterning of memories, brought to light in the same way that most human memories are, by the linking of kinds and of moments, with elements of one scene leading to the next.If compared to a modern highly researched history using multiple sources and recor

    Usama is a great teller of anecdotes Let me stress the fun side of this book I notice Penguin have dropped the first title on my copy, A Book of Contemplation. He may have jotted down these anecdotes in an arrangement that can be pretended to exhibit the inscrutability of fate in human life but that just means he collects eye witness, as often as not his own, on incidents bizarre, unusual or otherwise wort

    War conducts itself, my boy Widely considered the best work of the Muslim perspective of the Crusades, which was basically a bunch of filthy religious fanatics trying to invade the beaches of the eastern Mediterranean Ibn Munqidh s writings, collected here in part, has a timeless charm whether he is talking about war, faith, or the crazy shit he saw in his many wanderings through the medieval Levant Most historians

    Man, this was cool Since it was written in the late 1100s, I was expecting it to be pretty difficult, but it think it helps that this is a modern translation, and also that, other than one section that is a eulogy, it was apparently written in a fairly casual style I found it really interesting A lot of it is details of battles with the Franks, or battles with lions or other wild animals, and sometimes that got a lit

    Really neat but kind of meandering which might be the point The author tells about his life through an endless number of anecdotes and pearls of wisdom, skipping from place to place and time to time with only vague themes or similarities to link them It is life as a collection of footnotes, not as a cohesive novel Most of it is startlingly prosaic but there are a few moments of beautiful poetry especially when bemoans

    One of the coolest primary sources I ve seen

    Nothing better than reading history from a source actually there Of course you must be aware of bias and the like but for the educated reader this is a great compliment to Middle Eastern history.
