Description from the publisher: The main theme of this book is an investigation into the manner in which the succession to the Caliphate was regulated during the first three centuries of Islam, more particularly during the early Abbasid period. After providing the pre-Islamic background with regard to the manner of succession to authority as it had a definite influence on the practice followed in the later ages, the author explained the later developments in the selection of the leader, or Caliph, the Arab tribal practice of the selection of the senior most of the community, the abandonment of this practice, the introduction by the Abbasids of the method of succession to the rule by a free choice of the Caliph usually with the family of the ruler.
