The second half of the 20th century has witnessed, in the Arab Muslim world as well as in the West, more intellectual writings, debates, congresses, etc, about Ibn Khaldun's social thought than ever before since Ibn Khaldun wrote his Muqaddimah in the 14th century. The chapters of this book are intended to make their own contribution to the renewal of Ibn Khaldun's social science thought. Each one of the chapters explores something new about the original thought of the creative personality of the author of Muqaddimah

Ibn Khaldun (732 -808 AH) is the most important figure in the field of History and Sociology in Muslim History. He is one of those shining stars that contributed so richly to the understanding of Civilization. In order for one to understand and appreciate his work, one must understand his life. He lived a life in search of stability and influence. He came from a family of scholars and politicians and he intended to live up to both expectations. He would succeed in the field of Scholarship much more so than in any other field.

Upon Ibn Khaldun’s return to Egypt, he was restored as the Malikite Qadi. Due to the political situation within the community of Malikite Qadis Ibn Khaldun would be dismissed and reinstated three times during the five-year period. Finally, he died while he was in office on Wednesday March 17th 1406 (25th of Ramadan 808). He was buried in the Sufi Cemetery outside Bab an-Nasr, Cairo at the age of seventy-four years

Dr Mahmoud Dhaouadi is Professor of sociology at the University of Tunis, Tunisia. His research focuses on cultural symbols, cultural sociology, underdevelopment and linguistic underdevelopment in the Third World, and the thought of Ibn Khaldun. He is the author of more than 10 books in Arabic and English. His most recent book, in Arabic, is The Muaqaddimah in Cultural Sociology from an Arab Islamic Perspective
