Akbarnama, or the history of Akbar, by Abu’l-Fazl (D 1602), is one of the most important works of Indo-Persian history and a touchstone of prose artistry. Marking a high point in a long, rich tradition of Persian historical writing, it served as a model for historians across the Persianate world. The work is at once a biography of the Mughal emperor Akbar (R. 1556–1605) that includes descriptions of political and martial feats and cultural achievements, and a chronicle of sixteenth-century India. The seventh volume details the twenty-ninth to thirty-eighth years of Akbar reign, including accounts of the marriage of his son and heir Salim (Jahangir); conquests of Swat, Orissa, Kashmir, Sind, and the saurashtra peninsula; the pacification of Bengal; and the emperor visits to Kashmir, the Punjab, and Kabul. The Persian text, presented in the NASA script, is based on a careful reassessment of the primary sources.
