Saladin represents the best kind of biography -- a portrait of a man who is said to have made an age, and the most complete account we have to date of an age that made the man. The result is a unique view of the Crusades from an Arab perspective, and an erudite biography of a political figure whose image was layered in myth with the passage of time.

    Discover Citadel of Saladin in Cairo, Egypt: The medieval center of the Islamic world was also once the seat of Saladin's sultanate.   In the modern Muslim world, Saladin's reputation at a popular level has been used as a propagandistic prop for regimes in Egypt, Syria and even - ironically in view of his Kurdish origins - Iraq. Almost all the running in the serious historical study of Saladin has been made by British, American, German and Israeli scholars.
