Description from the publisher:
The History of Prophets and Kings by Tabari, here rendered as the History of al-Tabari, is by common
consent the most important universal history produced in the world of Islam. It has been translated here
in its entirety (Volume 5 forthcoming) for the first time for the benefit of non-Arabs, with historical and
philological notes for those interested in the particulars of the text. Tabari's monumental work explores
the history of the ancient nations, with special emphasis on biblical peoples and prophets, the legendary and factual history of ancient Iran, and, in great detail, the rise of Islam, the life of the Prophet
Muhammad (upon whom be peace), and the history of the Islamic world down to the year 915.
This is the complete translation into English of "Tareekh al Tabari" by State University of New York Press. Volume 40 is an index to the 39 volumes.
