A classified bibliography can be found in Aziz Al-Azmeh's Ibn Khaldûn in Modern Scholarship (London, 1981), pp. 229–318. Among translations of Ibn Khaldūn's works, two are recommended: The Muqaddimah, 3 vols., an English translation by Franz Rosenthal (1958; reprint, Princeton, N.J., 1980), and Le voyage d'Occident et d'Orient, a French translation of the Autobiography by Abdesselam Cheddadi (Paris, 1980).

A good introduction to the thought of Ibn Khaldūn remains Muhsin Mahdi's Ibn Khaldûn's Philosophy of History (London, 1957). While there are numerous studies of his sociological, philosophical, and historical thought, few are devoted to the specifically religious aspects of his work; among them is Ignacio Saadé's El pensamiento religioso de Ibn Jaldûn (Madrid, 1973).
