        T he Mamluks ruled Egypt and Syria from until , when their dynasty was extinguished by the Ottomans. But Mamluks had first appeared in the Abbasid caliphate in the ninth century and even after their overthrow by the Ottomans they continued to form an important part of Egyptian Islamic society and existed as an influential group until the 19th century. Analyzing Mamluk constructions as a form of communication and documentation as well as a cultural index, Mamluk History Through Architecture shows how the buildings mirror the complex -- and historically unique -- military, political, social and financial structures of Mamluk society.

      This Ottoman warrior, or the mamluk of all mamluks, like other military leaders (e.g., Kemal AtatUrk and Reza Khan) supposedly took advantage of a chaotic period, "stepping into a vacuum of power." Muhammad `Ali could do this, students of the Middle East were taught, because of the undeveloped and factionalized conditions of society and politics. In Thomas Philipp and Ulrich Haarmann, eds., The Mamluks in Egyptian Politics and Society (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ),

      Even after Egypt became part of the Ottoman Empire, the Mamluks remained in power to govern Egypt until the 19th century when Muhammed Ali rose up to establish a hereditary dynasty. During their centuries in power, the Mamluk Sultans oversaw the greatest heights of Egypt. The Mamluks in Egyptian and Syrian Politics and Society. Brill. ISBN Winter, Michael ().
