This article focuses on the salient agent (Virtuous Ruler/Shah/Supreme Leader/King) basing from the works of Al-Farabi (The Perfect State), Ferdowsi (The Epic of Kings), Al-Mawardi (The Ordinances of Government), and Nizam al-Mulk (The Book of Government or Rules for Kings). The study will first delineate their perspectives about the subject-matter (i.e. the institutional elites in statecraft), and then the author will compare and contrast their views including his own analysis as well. Selected comparative sections that pertain to the traceable criteria and processes of their views in order to complement an able and effective agent of statecrafting a civilization are presented.
