This book represents the first sustained attempt to understand Islamic urbanism and court life from an interdisciplinary approach. Samarra, the last great example of early Islamic city building in Iraq, was the capital of the Abbasid caliphate and the centre of court culture during the second half of the ninth century. Although archaeologists and art historians have worked on the site extensively, the bounty of numismatic, literary, and historical evidence has hardly been tapped. Since much of this evidence overlaps, Samarra offers unique insights into the character of city building, administration, military history, court life (ritual, court poetry), and imperial ideology throughout this period.
