Product description

Review

'" a highly accessible piece of scholarship in which Dale's humor and humanity combine with B bur's own to bring his story to life. These qualities mean that it is likely to be treasured by those interested in the T m rid-Mughuls, early modern empire building, and autobiographical writings in an Asian or Islamic context."' Siobhan Lambert-Hurley, "The Journal of Asian Studies," 2005. ""The Garden of the eight Paradises" is a remarkable biography of a remarkable figure, and it deserves a place on the shelf of anyone interested in Central Asian history, Mughal history, world history, and Islamicate historiography, to name just a few areas." Sholeh Quinn, "Journal of the American Oriental Society," 2008"
