Adventures of Ibn Battuta : Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century - rev edition

Adventures of Ibn Battuta : Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century (ISBN10: 0520243854; ISBN13: 9780520243859)
ISBN13: 978-0520243859
ISBN10: 0520243854

Summary: Known as the greatest traveler of premodern times, Abu Abdallah ibn Battuta was born in Morocco in 1304 and educated in Islamic law. At the age of twenty-one, he left home to make the holy pilgrimage to Mecca. This was only the first of a series of extraordinary journeys that spanned nearly three decades and took him not only eastward to India and China but also north to the Volga River valley and south to Tanzania. The narrative of these travels has been known to sp
ecialists in Islamic and medieval history for years. Ross E. Dunn's 1986 retelling of these tales, however, was the first work of scholarship to make the legendary traveler's story accessible to a general audience. Now updated with revisions, a new preface, and an updated bibliography, Dunn's classic interprets Ibn Battuta's adventures and places them within the rich, trans-hemispheric cultural setting of medieval Islam.
