The present work in two volumes is the English translation of Tarikh-i-Rashidi, written by Mirza Muhammad Haidar, Dughlat. The book brings forth an absorbing and informative history of Central Asia. The object of the Tarikh-i-Rashidi, as the author tells his readers, is to preserve the memory of Moghuls and their Khans. The author, Mirza Haidar, has attempted a very minute and first hand account of the region which reveals it both in depth and on a personal level. The work is an earnest one, and the author, no doubt intended that it should be before everything else, a clear and complete exposition of the times he had set himself to chronicle. The scope and character of the Tarikh-i-Rashidi may be briefly summarised in the following way. It may be regarded as the history of that branch of the Moghul Khans who separated themselves, about the year 1321, from the main system of the Chaghatai, which was them the ruling dynasty in Transoxiana; and it is only history known to exist of this branch of the Moghuls. The original, or western line—that of Transoxiana—was at that time declining in power, and through internal dissensions and administrative decay, was rapidly approaching a final dissolution. The princes of the branch then thrown off, became masters of Moghulistan (or Jatah, as it was called at that period) and of all Eastern Turkistan, and continued as a ruling dynasty for more than two and a half centuries. The book is divided into two parts, called Daftar, the first of which is entirely historical, while the second contains reminiscences of the author’s life and notices of Chaghatai, Uzbeg and other princes, with whom he was acquainted.
