(Vol. 2 Islam Quintet) ISBN: 1859842313 Number of Copies: 1 Author: Tariq Ali

Ali’s earthy, lusty saga about the fall of Jerusalem to Muslim forces in 1187 rewrites Eurocentric history by focusing on the historical figure Salah al-Din (better known as Saladin), the Kurdish upstart who used his position as sultan of Egypt and Syria to retake the Holy City from Crusaders.
