Saladin: The Sultan Who Vanquished the Crusaders and Built an Islamic Empire


Saladin was a great Islamic leader who combined power and kindness to build a strong army and benefit his people. His political and military tactics can successfully be used today. While he sought to help his faith and his people, he did not seek personal profit. He died penniless and those who tended to his body had to search to find a garment in which to bury him. A fascinating figure. Listen to John Man talk about his new book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
