Abstract:
This study deals with the development of the land tenure system in Egypt from 697/1297 to 882/1477. It discusses in detail the land tenure system in Egypt 775/1373 during the period of al-Ashraf Shaban and in the year 882/1477 during the reign of al-Ashraf Qaytbay, as presented in Ibn al-Jian's work al-Tuhfa. It also traces the development of the whole system from 697/1297 to 882/1477, to highlight the trends of change and discusses the reasons behind such change and the results of such changes. Chapter 1 surveys the primary Arabic sources and modern scholarly studies on Mamluk economic history. Chapter 2 analyses the life and works of Ibn al-Jian whilst Chapter 3 discusses the administrative terminology used by Iban al-Jian and other sources. Chapters 4 and 5 give an analysis of the land tenure system during the reign of al-Ashraf Shaban and al-Ashraf Qaytbay. Chapter 6 considers aspects of the development of the land tenure system and the underlying reasons of change. The conclusions summarise the main trends inherent in the land tenure system during the Mamluk period.
