Afghan History Through Afghan Eyes

Christine Noelle-Karimi

Oxford University Press

Christine Noelle-Karimi analyzes two Persian histories written during the early Durrani period by Mahmud al-Husayni of Mashhad (in present-day Iran) and Imam al-Din Husayni of Lahore (in present-day Pakistan). Rather than presenting the Durrani Empire as a forerunner to the Afghan nation-state, Noelle-Karimi situates its historians in their own spatial horizons by showing how the historiography of the Durrani Empire emerged out of the political and literary geographies of the earlier Iranian and Indian empires from which Durrani power had itself emerged.
