Summary
A history of the caliphate since the death of the prophet Mohammed until the last official caliph in the 13th century, and its modern incarnations under various Islamist groups today. Contrary to popular belief, Islamic law is not a codified set of legislations, and thus there cannot be one definition of the role of the caliph. Rather, this title has been the subject of serious debate and transformation over time. In this book, historian and Middle East expert Hugh Kennedy lifts the veil on the changing and contested position of the caliph and explores the succession of various leaders of the Islamic world

Summary
A preeminent scholar of Islamic history presents an authoritative history of caliphates, a politico-religious system, from the seventh century to today, that dissects the idea of the caliphate and its history, explores how it became used and abused today, and challenges the very narrow views of the caliphate propagated by extremist groups today
