Encyclopaedic Historiography of the Muslim World (In 3 Volumes)

N.K. Singh (Editor) A. Samiuddin (Editor)
Synopsis This "Encyclopaedic Historiography of the Muslim World", published for the first time in 3 volumes, has become a classic work for its exhaustive study of 359 Muslim Historians and more than 100 Historical Works from the early Islamic history to contemporary Muslim World. The Encyclopaedia having information about Muslim Historians all over the world and their splendid works on glorious Muslim periods becomes an invaluable reference book for the scholars as well as the general readers. Muslim historians compiled more historical works than were collectively complied in any other language by that time. A survey of the historical works conducted by Wiistenfeld showed that the number of works written during the first millennium was 590 books. These works deal with a history of province or a city or a particular tribe or sect, or singular events like the battle of 'Siffin' or that of ' the Camel'. From the very beginning they recorded historical anecdotes with particular emphasis on date and year-a practice quite unknown to other nations till that time. Their early works give significant treatment so far as the arrangement of historical material is concerned. There can be no doubt that a new and thorough study of the Muslim historiographers and their work is a great scientific want felt by all the scholars working in this field. The names of different countries all over the world producing those eminent historians are arranged alphabetically in this encyclopedia enabling the reader to search the names at ease. This book will be an asset for all Libraries.
