The Caliph of Cairo

Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah, 9961021

Paul E. Walker

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

To some, al-Hakim was God incarnate, to others an infallible imam, to still others he was a capricious tyrant. This book examines myth and fact, document and opinion, to present the most complete and detailed history yet written of the life and times of one of the medieval Islamic world's most controversial figures.
