Islamic history is a vast and varied subject. This book discusses numerous Muslim approaches to history and historiography from early to modern times.It includes a discussion of the etymological roots of terms used by classical scholars for the study of history; the place of history in the traditional classification of Islamic sciences; Sunni and Shi‘i historiography, with a special section on Isma‘ili historiography; and Persian, African, and Andalusian historiography. The section on Persian historiography features particularly rich details and spans historiographical approaches across the various dynastic periods – including a section on medieval versified historiography – and the post-Revolutionary period.
