- Fourteenth-century Mediterranean empires

- Ibn Khaldun and his time


"Empires fall, races decline, the strong become weak and beauty dies amidst wrinkles and grey hairs. Life never stops in its eternal function, and with the causes that fall down into old age, the paths of youth on the rise meet and cross one another. You will always find powerful empires, strong races, fresh, original ideals and beauties; here, along with the drain of death, are the springs of constant, fertile birth...".

Benito Pérez Galdós, Aita Tetuan
