Summary
A history of Arab civilization under the leadership of Caliph Harun al-Rashid, the legendary caliph of "The thousand and one nights," whose actual court was nearly as splendid as the fictional one. Examines Harun's rise to power, his fostering of many cultural and scientific advances that still affect us today, the growth of the Muslim Empire under his rule, and his struggle to hold back the Byzantine forces from his kingdom
