History of Afghanistan Online

Description: The History of Afghanistan Online is the online, translated version of Fayż Muḥammad Kātib Hazārah's Sirāj al-tawārīkh. The Sirāj al-tawārīkh is an essential text for any scholar wishing to understand Afghanistan's history. It forms the core text of historical writings from within Afghanistan for the period, 1747-1919.

For many decades, Afghanistan's history had been recounted through records of the experiences and policies of the British in India. And yet the country has a rich historiographic tradition of its own. The work is of unparalleled significance to anyone studying the social, political, and economic history of Afghanistan as well as its relations with British India, Qajar Iran, Tsarist Central Asia, and the emirate of Bukhara. 

The History of Afghanistan Online is annotated, fully indexed, and includes introductions, twelve appendices, Persian-English and English-Persian glossaries, and a bibliography.

Trial period: July 28 - August 26, 2017
