The history of Sultan Mas'ud of Ghazna, 1030-1041. Volume 1, Introduction and translation of years 421-423 A.H. (1030-1032 A.D.)
This is the first complete translation, with detailed commentary, of the surviving volumes of Beyhaqi's massive project. The historian's writings, dealing with the years 1030--1041, combine astute criticism and wry humor with an unobtrusive display of mastery of the learned literature of the time, both in Arabic and Persian.
