‘Abd Al-Mu’min 
Mahdism And Caliphate In The Islamic West 

Oneworld Academic, 192 págs. 
ISBN: 9781851684281 

Abd al-Mu’min (c. 1094-1163) no estableció el primer califato del Occidente islámico, pero abarcó más territorio que ninguno de los que le precedieron. Como líder de los almohades, un movimiento político-religioso basado en una creencia intransigente en la unidad de Dios, unificó por primera vez todo el norte de África al oeste de Egipto y conquistó gran parte del sur de España. 
Estudiando todas las facetas del gobierno de ‘Abd al-Mu’min, desde su violenta represión de la oposición hasta el florecimiento de la erudición durante su reinado, el estudio revela a un líder inteligente y a un hábil comandante militar que trató de construir un califato duradero entre sociedades dispares y diversas.
