520    Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406) is one of the most influential and 
       important Muslim thinkers in history. Ibn Khaldun has 
       inspired at least as much interest among modern scholars 
       as his immediate contemporaries. Legions of sociologists, 
       anthropologists and historians have studied his philosophy
       of history, treating the Muqaddimah as a timeless piece of
       philosophy. Most studies of Ibn Khaldun ignore the 
       fascinating story his own life and times. Rejecting 
       portrayals of Ibn Khaldun as a modern mind lost in 
       medieval obscurity, Ibn Khaldun: Life and Times 
       demonstrates how Ibn Khaldun's ideas were shaped by his 
       historical context and personal motivations. Relying on 
       original Arabic sources, most importantly Ibn Khaldun's 
       unique autobiography, this is the first complete, 
       scholarly biography of Ibn Khaldun in English. While 
       previous studies dismissed Ibn Khaldun's autobiography as 
       lacking in psychological depth, Ibn Khaldun: Life and 
       Times challenges this view. Demonstrating the rich and 
       complex nature of Ibn Khaldun's memoirs, Ibn Khaldun: Life
       and Times not only tells the life story of Ibn Khaldun in 
       an accessible way, it also introduces readers to the 
       fourteenth-century Mediterranean world. Seen in the 
       context of a politically tumultuous and religiously 
       contentious fourteenth century Mediterranean, Ibn 
       Khaldun's ideas about tribalism, identity, religion and 
       history are even more relevant to pressing, modern
