The main purpose of publishing this kindle edition is to educate, not to entertain. Written by the great fourteenth-century scholar Ibn Khaldun, this monumental work laid down the foundations of several fields of knowledge, including philosophy of history, sociology, ethnography, and economics. Ibn Khaldun was a follower of the Maliki school of islamic jurisprudence. The Muqaddimah is of course a long read and the Kindle version has recently been updated so there are improvements with regards to the formatting, there are purposely no line endings and a limit on paragraph breaks due to the size of the book. It has been split into chapters in order to make the reading experience more easy for readers. However, it is a long book so it may be hard for some people to read it so quickly. It is better if it is read and digested slowly. The production of this kindle edition purposely does not include so many line breaks so as not to disrupt the flow of this islamic text. It is a long read and the table of contents has been recently formatted more correctly. The knowledge that Ibn Khaldun has given in this book is only a small portion of the sources of knowledges from which he had taken in order to compile this masterpiece. Know that Islamic Scholars are very deep people and their works are truly astounding regardless of length. Masha Allah.

Perfect kindle version of this masterpiece
on 12 August 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I have become a history buff in my adult years and have a thirst for some of the things that many mainstream readers would not normally pick up. A translated Arab history of the world is just such a thing and I was highly intrigued by some of the other reviews, yet waited for a kindle update. The one that I just read was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed this translation of Ibn Khaldun's important work that takes a look at just about anything you could imagine, from religion to science to economics. Intriguing, educational and enlightening.
