About this product
- DescriptionHow did Muslims of the classical Islamic period understand their past? What value did they attach to history? How did they write history? How did historiography fare relative to other kinds of Arabic literature? These and other questions are answered in Chase F. Robinson's Islamic Historiography, an introduction to the principal genres, issues, and problems of Islamic historical writing in Arabic, that stresses the social and political functions of historical writing in the Islamic world. Beginning with the origins of the tradition in the eighth and ninth centuries and covering its development until the beginning of the sixteenth century, this is an authoritative and yet accessible guide through a complex and forbidding field, which is intended for readers with little or background in Islamic history or Arabic.
- Author BiographyChase F. Robinson is University Lecturer in Islamic History at the University of Oxford. His publications include Empire and Elites after the Muslim Conquest: The Transformation of Northern Mesopotamia (2000).
