about this item

Tamerlane ruled over one of the largest empires in history – an empire that stretched from Syria in the east to the fringes of China, and from southern Russia to northern India. He was a ruthless conqueror, feared throughout Asia, Europe and Africa, and a superb military tactician. Yet he was also a patron of the arts and learning and he turned his capital – Samarkand - into a great city. Arabshah’s biography of Tamerlane is that of a contemporary, and was written soon after the events it describes. It is highly detailed and, in contrast to most biographies of Tamerlane, is also highly critical, which makes it especially interesting. It is the major historical source on one of history’s great conquerors. This edition carries a new introduction by a leading scholar.
