Both an official chronicle and a highly personal memoir of emperor Babur (1483-1530). The Baburnama presents a vivid and extraordinarily detailed picture of life in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India during the late-fifteenth and early-sixthteenth centuries. Babur's honest and intimate chronicle is the first autobiography in Islamic literature, written at a time when there was no historical precedent for a personal narrative - now in a sparkling new translation by Islamic scholar Wheeler Thackston.
