Broken down into 21 chapters, Holt covers the Crusading Age, followed by the rise of the Ayyubid Sultanate and the Mamluk Sultanate. Though these are the main actors, Holt gives coverage to Byzantine, Mongol, Seljuk, Karaman, Ottoman, and other empires or peoples who affected or impacted the Near East. Especially fascinating is his covering of the powerful Mamlukes, from their complex and bloody rise to power, to their fall at the hands of the Ottoman Empire in 1517. As noted in the title, the book ends with the fall of the Mamlukes, and with them the fall of "Bilad Ash-Sham" and Egypt to the Ottoman Empire, and indeed the end of the "Middle Ages" for the Near East.
