Chapter Summary

This chapter gives overview of the topics that are discussed in the coming chapters. The main focus will be on the period of Sub?an Quli Khan. The reigns of four earlier Ashtarkhanid rulers are also outlined, due to their influence and impact on the historical development which took place during Sub?an Quli Khan. The author recounts the events during the reigns of only four of them, passing over the periods of Yar Mu?ammad (1598-1600), Din Mu?ammad (1598), Jani Mu?ammad (1600-3), and Baqi Mu?ammad (1603-5) without remark. Furthermore, he only mentions the name of Vali Mu?ammad (1605-11) in connection with the power struggle between him and his nephew Imam Quli Khan. He also discusses the first battle between Imam Quli Khan and Nadir/Nazr Mu?ammad Khan's armies and Vali Mu?ammad Khan's army on the bank of the Oxus River and their reconciliation in the month of Rajab 1016 (October/ November 1607).
