The "Mamluk" phenomenon is totally unique in human history, from all points of view.
It all began in the Abbasid era, when the Caliphs in Baghdad started to establish an important military force composed of young slaves bought mainly in Asia Minor. These slaves received military training before joining the new force, which had for mission the personal protection of the Caliph.
The practice was later adopted by Egyptian Sultans between the tenth and twelfth centuries. On receiving their extensive, strict, and demanding training, making them excellent horsemen and warriors, they were emancipated and appointed in the Army which, with time, consisted virtually of Mamluks only. They gradually gained enormous power, and ended up by appointing themselves Sultans in 1250, forming a dynasty of former slaves governing the country for almost 300 years, spreading their rule at some points almost over the entire Middle East. Apart from their military prowess, they developed their own culture, in which art had a prominent place that they systematically promoted and supported, and applied to all aspects of their life. They had exquisite taste with which they chose their surroundings: buildings, armors, clothes, utensils, ornaments, etc. They commissioned artworks extensively, and artists and artisans flourished significantly.
This book is in hard cover and in big and luxury format. It was published on the occasion of a traveling exhibition, organized by the Smithsonian Institute. It gives us an extensive look at many of the art objects created during the Mamluk era, with the exception of architecture. The objects cover a wide range of materials: brass, glass, ceramic, illustrated manuscripts, wood, textiles, etc. They come from museums and collections almost from all corners of the world: Europe, North America, and the Middle East: a proof of how Mamluk art is coveted and appreciated. The quality of the reproductions is excellent and the texts are rich and informative. A pure gem on a unique period of art and human history.

Renaissance of Islam: Art of the Mamluks is a splendid item. The text is the result of a detailed research where the author ( Esin Atil) made an extraordinary catalogue of items displayed in an exhibition in USA. The text was enriched by innumerable Arabic inscriptions , related to the texts inscribed on the objects and it was lavishly illustrated in details and different views.
For me, it is an useful tool. In fact, I am building in Rio de Janeiro a special place like a palace-mosque in Neo-Mamluk Style of Architecture and then, the pictures, but mainly the inscription are priceless for me. So precious that I have three books and they are with me all the time.
But Renaissance of Islam: Art of the Mamluks is not a catalogue only ! It is also a perfect summary of the history of the Mamluk Period and the arts and crafts of that period, covering the metalwork, Illuminated manuscripts, glass, ceramics, woodwork, ivory and stone work, as well as textile and rugs and illustrated manuscripts. Then, is a perfect and complete approach to the theme.
