Chapter Summary

Persian historiography was one of the first literary genres to establish itself in New Persian literature. With regard to the sources from that region and the period when the Shaybanids and Ashtarkhanids ruled, i.e., c. 1502-c. 1713, only a small number of Persian primary sources have been critically edited and translated into Russian or into Western European languages, mainly English. In view of the number of works written in Persian in that region, there is still much work to do to produce critical editions and translations of the historiographical writings from that region and particularly from the era of the Ashtarkhanids. This book aims to provide a critical edition of one such historiographical work from that region and time entitled Mu?i? al-tavarikh (The Sea of Chronicles) by Mu?ammad Amin b. Mirza Mu?ammad Zaman Bukhari (?ufiyani).

Keywords:era of the Ashtarkhanids; Muḥīṭ al-tavārīkh (The Sea of Chronicles); Persian historiography; Shaybanids
