The History of al-Tabari (Suny Press)


The Tabari Translation Project concerns the translation and annotation of al-Tabari’s 10th century universal History in 40 volumes. So far 39 volumes have been published and the remaining volume, a comprehensive index, is due for publication in the summer of 2007. It is a project of the Center for Iranian Studies and was supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and was chosen by the NEH as an example of a “major project” in which a number of scholars have cooperated.
