Abstract

The 4th/10th century is generally described as a period in which military force overtakes the civil administration, plunging Iraq (and caliphal authority) in a chaos from which it will emerge only with the advent of the Buyid period. This paper will reflect on how historical sources describe the evolving role of bureaucrats in this context.
