From the cover: “Long before Alfred became King of England, there was a mighty Arab empire in the East. For the Arabs, inspired by the teachings of Mohammed, had swept out of the barren deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and conquered country after country. Their lands stretched from Gibraltar to China, and for a while Baghdad was the crossroads of the world. Fur traders from the steppes of Russia mingled with spice merchants from India and China in the great bazaars.

This authoritative book brings alive for children and their parents the Golden Age of the Arab Empire which ended violently many hundreds of years ago, but preserved for us much of the learning of Greece and the ancient world.”
