Ibn Khaldun. The Muqaddimah: An Introduction to History. Abridged Edition
Routledge & Kegan, 1978. - 480 p.

The Muqaddimah, often translated as "Introduction" or "Prolegomenon," is the most important Islamic history of the premode world. Written by the great fourteenth-century Arab scholar Ibn Khaldn (d. 1406), this monumental work laid down the foundations of several fields of knowledge, including philosophy of history, sociology, ethnography, and economics. The first complete English translation, by the eminent Islamicist and interpreter of Arabic literature Franz Rosenthal, was published in three volumes in 1958 as part of the Bollingen Series and received immediate acclaim in America and abroad. A one-volume abridged version of Rosenthal's masterful translation was first published in 1969.
