Chapter Summary

This chapter contains general remarks about the book "The Chronicles and Annalistic Sources of the Early Mamluk Circassian Period". The element that the author has chosen to use as the standard unit of analysis in this book is the individual report. As a result, the author has carried out in the appendices the breakdown of each annal into its akhbàr components. These are placed into four broad categories: Political/ Military/Administrative Affairs [PMA], which include political events, military encounters, and appointments to both state, administrative and even religious functions, if the latter resulted from political considerations; Religious Life [RL]; Social History/Miscellany [SHM] and Foreign Affairs [FA]. Under each of these headings, there are entries corresponding to reports found in the sources that were examined. These entries are made up of a main entry and of one or more secondary ones.

Keywords: Annalistic Sources; Chronicles; Early Mamluk Circassian period
