This has however remained unexplored in scholarship on the Islamic world. This book redresses that by examining the ceremonial of accession to the caliphate in early Islam, covering the place of ritual in political practice, changes and continuities in that practice and the problem of how best to understand accounts of ritual.It also offers a contribution to major, current debates in Islamic history: the development of Arab-Muslim identity and the formation of the Islamic state.
